F.I.S.H.I.N.G by Pieter-Rim de Kroon


“Many men go fishing all of their lives without knowing it is not fish they are after.”
 - Henry David Thoreau

A cinematic quest to explain the fishing instinct inside Man. Why do people fish? Is angling a sport, a hobby or something similar to hunting, a primeval and deeply anchored instinct? Or is it about escaping everyday commitments, and heading back to unpredictable nature? Above and below water, F.I.S.H.I.N.G casts into the parallel worlds of fish and fishermen in Holland.
