Wominjeka Festival 2019: Black Screen
Teach A Man To Fish
Directed by Grant Saunders
This autobiographical fishing trip follows an emotional journey of Aboriginal filmmaker, Grant Leigh Saunders, coming to terms with his identity in his mid-40’s. Despite a promising artistic career, Grant has secretly wanted to be a fisherman, just like his father Ray and his grandfather Horry before him, and on the eve of Ray’s retirement, Grant finally convinces him to pass on the family trade. As Grant learns to catch fish he casts questions about the history of his family’s triumph over trauma that allowed him to be a third-generation Aboriginal fisherman.
