“There are two ways to fish. With nets or without. But if I fish with violence, will my nets be full of blood?” That is the difficult choice facing Chire, the main character in this short narrative film about Somali pirates, many of whom have turned to crime because their waters have been overfished by foreigners. Fishing Without Nets, which is told from the point of view of the pirates and sometimes feels like a documentary, tells the story of young Somali men who have given up on their lives as fishermen to go after a bigger catch: the giant cargo ships that sail through their part of the world. This film captures the rough world of these hardened men as it shimmers and shines on the high seas.
