“Like a Coen Brothers film set on the high seas, Fishing Without Nets thrusts us into a man-made prison of greed, hopelessness, and violence.” —Examiner

A Somali pirate tale, told from the view of the pirates, examines ways that economic conditions can lead fishermen to change their work on the high seas. Shot with Somali non-actors, the film explores their moral dilemmas and life-changing decisions. 2014, DCP, English, Somali, and French with English subtitles, 109 minutes.
