JOSEPH GOLDMAN/ FISHERMEN OF MACKEREL COVE. A traditional way of life for 300 years is rapidly disappearing. The principle livelihood of men on this island has been fishing and farming. The film examines their intense engagement with nature, and reflects upon themes of independence, freedom, self-reliance; central to American culture. Photographed in all seasons, the chronicle has a ‘non-linear structure’. This project is near completion (expected early 2011). A long time in-the-making, I’ve recently edited down to a new 86-minute rough-cut. Currently in discussion with PBS for national prime-time broadcast. Shot in 16mm, a finished HD scan will be required.
