Movie Info

The Pullars are one of the last families using traditional methods to fish for wild Atlantic salmon off the coast of Scotland. When these methods involve killing seals, the salmon's natural predators, conflict erupts. Animal activist groups Sea Shepherd and Hunt Saboteurs oppose the Pullars at every turn, despite the legality of the fishermen's actions and the consequences to their livelihood. Challenging preconceptions, this ambiguous doc puts modern environmentalism under the microscope.

  • Surprisingly gripping viewing.

  • It progresses, however, into something darker and sadder, and is a bitter testament to the power of commercial interests to weaponise the law for financial gain.

  • Tense, provocative but impressively balanced, Of Fish and Foe shows green issues are not always black and white.

    July 29, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Allegations of collusion between the activists and the anglers duly follow but the film's strength lies in the way it subtly probes the murky role class plays in defining how a country presents itself to the world.

    July 26, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • The documentary holds back. There's no real narrative, not much text on screen...it's a very nuanced, inflammatory subject, so you lose a lot in just showing it without explanation or context...

  • Whilst Heathcote's film doesn't always flatter, it does succeed in capturing a disappearing lifestyle at a critical point in history. It's a film whose value is likely to increase with time and an intriguing point of a little-observed community.
