Top 200 Most Anticipated Films for 2014: #71. Cutter Hodierne’s Fishing without Nets

Fishing Without Nets

Director: Cutter Hodierne
Writers: Cutter Hodierne, David Burkman, Sam Cohan, John Hibey
Producers: THINK Media Studios’ Brian Glazen and Stephanie Pinola, Raphael Swann, John Hibey, and Hodierne along with Picture Farm’s Rupert Wyatt, Ben Freedman and Victor Shapiro
U.S. Distributor: Rights Available
Cast: Abdikani Muktar, Abdi Siad, Abduwhali Faarah, Abdikhadir Hassan, Reda Kateb, Idil Ibrahim

Winner of the Directing Award: U.S. Dramatic award, if Cutter Hodierne’s directorial debut got caught in our nets it’s got a lot to do with the original short film on which this was based on. Raw, intense with poetically rendered portions, Fishing Without Nets is a fierce exploration of the situation in Somalia.

Gist: This is a story of pirates in Somalia, told from the perspective of the pirates.

Release Date: Naturally receiving its world premiere at the Sundance Film Festival in the U.S Dramatic Comp, this will likely be an international film festival fave and be shown theatrically sometime this year.
