the net makers

a film by Hannah Myers Lindgren

USA, 17 mins.


Two men carry on the tradition of crafting special nets for commercial fishing in the White and Wabash Rivers. Larry and Danny spend countless hours hand-tying thousands of knots to create the intricate hoopnets that have been used in that area since the Great Depression. Will this art form continue when they are gone?
