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.
