We’re delighted to present this beautifully crafted, feature length documentary, created so close to the festival. It’s a truly inspiring and uplifting story highlighting the impacts of continued globalisation, and about the difference we can make as individuals when we put our passion before capitalism, to preserve the important heritage that has come before us. We’ll also be joined by producer Leo Kaserer for a Q&A following the film, so don’t miss out on this unique opportunity to put your questions to him.

Malcolm Baker is the last traditional Fisherman in the Rame Peninsula, a beautiful, sleepy and forgotten corner of Cornwall, England. Still fishing like generations of fishermen before him, he relies on traditional tools, techniques and a knowledge of the sea. Malcolm makes crab pots by hand, repairing and restoring his hand built wooden boats and sowing his nets.

He finds himself out of time, even a little out of touch, struggling to understand his place in the world. However when it looked impossible for him to continue an unlikely friendship formed with an Austrian youth worker whose passion for a simpler way of life and the preservation of these traditional skills leads to a future no one would have ever expected.
