"Sundance's most beautiful film."
"Cutter Hodierne’s gorgeous, harrowing debut feature, Fishing Without Nets, goes further. Rather than asking you to feel a bit for the pirates, Hodierne’s film puts you in their shoes."
- VILLAGE VOICE
"..vast, sweeping landscapes on and off the Somali coast are as ominous and alien as they are beautiful...[and] a few wordless moments in Abdi’s village are as intimate and telling as the art form permits"
"Hodierne makes an accomplished feature debut with this very well-crafted, empathetic hijacking drama."
