Fish Eye

Occhio di pesce
by Amin Behroozzadeh Documentary Iran 2020 70'

The fishing boat Parsian Shila begins its ocean journey with a crew of 30 African fishermen and 5 Iranians at the commands. The goal is to catch 2000 tons of tuna. Out on the high sea for months at a time, without the possibility to contact their families, the men share the hardships of a 15-hour workday. Daily life aboard the ship is tense until a school is sighted that is large enough to ensure a good catch to return home with. Fishing becomes a matter of life and death. This visual essay combines poetry and social criticism in its portrait of capitalism and industrial-scale fishing.
