Two fishermen from Mumbai’s Indigenous Koli community confront the impact of the changing environment – and the toll on their friendship – in this intimate doc. Special Jury Award, Sundance 2023.
Proud new father Rakesh fishes the shallows of the bay in the traditional way, physically hauling in his catch, just like his father before him. His close friend Ganesh has taken a different path, heading out to deeper water in a power boat, using new and sometimes illicit technologies. The fish are declining due to pollution, amongst other things, and both men are struggling to make ends meet. Filmed over six years, Sarvnik Kaur’s intimate documentary celebrates the durability of their relationship, despite their differences, through weddings, births and financial crises. A touching, humanistic portrait that also reflects on the fragility of our ongoing relationship with the environment.SFF Award Winners Encore Screenings
