A life at See

Winner > Best First-Time Documentary Film
There are not many of them left – the original seamen. Heiko, Gill, and Stephan are some of the few remaining crab fishermen who fight on their cutter “Damkerort” for their livelihood, their family on land, and above all for absolute freedom at sea. However, more and more often their nets remain empty and the business becomes unprofitable. The work requires hard life decisions. The film portrays an intimate insight into the often blocked emotional world of three Büsumer crab fishermen.
