Event description

Description

The Last Fisherman Standing are humbled and proud to host the closing film of the Films on the Gallery Wall film festival. Together with Cornish filmmaker and social worker Leo Kaserer we are screening the "Last Fisherman" film, a documentary telling the story of 70-year-old fisherman Malcolm Baker, the last traditional fisherman of the Rame Peninsula, Cornwall. Telling Malcolm's story through the eyes of locals and his apprentice Leo, the film features stunning visuals of Cornwall's coastline and shares Malcolm's lifelong passion for the sea.

Malcolm's story is one that is representative of many traditional fishing communities along the coast of the British Isles including Worthing. As we're losing this centuries old trade and its knowledge of pulling posts and shooting nets by hand, the Last Fisherman Standing celebrates and protects the heritage of the fishing industry in our town by screening the "Last Fisherman".

Tickets are only £4 and include a drink and light refreshments. There are only limited tickets available so book now to avoid disappointment.

More about the Last Fisherman Standing:

The Last Fisherman Standing is a two-year long Heritage Lottery funded project. It will run until the end of May 2018 and has so far included a pop up fisheries museum on Worthing beach, a mini fish market, monthly fish cookery and filleting sessions as well as an exhibition of Worthing's fishing heritage on our pier.

The project is run by We Are FoodPioneers CIC, a local social enterprise that builds community through shared food experiences and celebrates the heritage of our local food industries.
