Al Seefah

United Arab Emirates, 2011


With new fishing laws in effect, local fishermen are struggling to preserve their ancestors’ way of life. This film portrays an old fisherman who reminisces about the days when it was possible for anyone to put their nets in the sea without paying fines.

This film is not currently playing on MUBI but 30 other great films are. See what’s now showing
