Well Fished

Nov 22, 2017 | Land & Sea

Well Fished is a short documentary film exploring the lives of two young Nova Scotian women who, unlike other many their age, dream of living a life working on the Atlantic. Nova Scotia’s population and landscape have drastically changed throughout the decades. The role of women was also transformed with the passing of traditional gender roles and the decline of the male dominated fishing industry. The film portrays Grace MacDougall and Fallon Conway’s connection to Atlantic Canada’s older and disappearing fishing traditions.

Written, shot and directed by: Corinne Dunphy
