Leviathan: following the modern day fishing trawlers

Issue No. 2382

This extraordinary vivid film returns to the US fishing port of New Bedford, over 150 years after the classic novel Moby Dick.

In 90 dizzying, dialogue-free minutes it zooms in on the modern day trawlers where fish are dragged up from the depths and gutted on deck.

It’s a unique chance to see one of the world’s most dangerous professions up close—through a fish-eye lens, naturally.
