Madagascar, 2003
52 min
The popular fishing documentary series takes a trip to the eastern shores of Africa’s biggest island, and a Mecca for fishing aficionados from far and near, Madagascar.
The Vezos are defined by their way of life. The semi-nomadic group lives off the sea, and not just the fish that they capture with creative traditional methods, but also the sacred sea turtles. Everything that comes from the sea is good is their motto, and it is a device reflected in the respectful way they way they interact with their source of life.

Even tourists are treating the popular spots with the outmost care and respect: as soon as they have captured their fish, they photograph and throw it back into the sea. This documentary portrays an idyllic picture of humans and nature in perfect harmony.
