  • EdieEmm's rating of the film Fishing Without Nets

    Visually stunning short that feels more like a trailer for his subsequent feature of the same name. Stylized cinematography & slick music video-style sound design are on one hand pretty jarringly white boy for a film about desperation in Somalia but, on the other, such a long time coming in portrayals of Africa; humanizing, in a millennial, media culture sort of way. Which is something. More commentary post-feature.
