On The Rowanlea Trawler

France, 1992 (MIFF 2007, Magnum In Motion)

Director: Jean Gaumy

On The Rowanlea Trawler

Shot mainly against the light, On the Rowanlea Trawler makes us silent witness to the activities taking place on the decks of a trawler. This represents Gaumy's fantasy of animating his stills as he was also preparing a book on the same subject at the time.
