Driftwood 9 11

Film tip: If you don’t mind late 80′s fashion, low budget filmmaking and lovely geordie accents, you still have eleven days to watch In Fading Light on SideTV, the free Internet television channel of Newcastle upon Tyne based film and photography collective Amber.

In Fading Light is a drama from 1989, set in the declining fishing industry in North Shields. A large part of the film was shot on board a small fishing vessel (a 63 foot seine netter), and the fishing scenes are exceptionally realistic. In fact, the actors were auditioned and trained by local fishermen, and they filmed during an actual storm.
It’s a rather endearing story, and at the same time a fascinating documentary on the fishing industry of the time.
