  • Description
  • The film narrates accounts of climate change experienced by fishermen along the South African Coast. Various fishermen share on camera how the sea has changed over the years – shifting sands, rising currents, missing species, new species showing up. Topping this, the new fishing permit laws allow fishermen to fish only in their waters. How are these fishermen handling the changes beyond their control and that which is not their doing? Or are they able to handle the changes at all?
