FISHING WITHOUT NETS
Shot in East Africa, cast with Somali non-actors, Fishing Without Nets tells the mesmerizing and sobering story of pirates in Somalia from the perspective of a struggling, young Somali fisherman and father, who turns to piracy in order to support his family. Starring Abdikani Muktar, Reda Kateb and Abdi Siad.
"Sundance's most beautiful film" - The Wrap
"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...On land, Disenhof (DP) has the eye to make a few wordless moments in Abdi’s village as intimate and telling as the artform permits" - Cinespect
"Cutter Hodierne makes an accomplished feature debut with this very well-crafted, empathetic hijacking drama." - Variety
