Award winning “Last Fisherman” film screening in Worthing’s historic fisherman’s church
Worthing’s 19th century Christ Church on Portland Road will play host to the award winning “Last Fisherman” documentary film screening on the 6th of November this year.
The film tells the story of Malcolm, the last traditional fisherman on the Rame Peninsula, and illustrates
the often unnoticed demise of small scale fishing all over the UK. The “Last Fisherman” has already received a lot of national and international attention, having been featured on
Countryfile upon launch in September, and has won a number of international awards since then.
The screening in Worthing is the first in Sussex!
The evening will not only showcase the “Last Fisherman” but will also give the audience an opportunity to learn first-hand what life as a fisherman means for traditional fishing
communities in and beyond Sussex. After the film there will be a Q&A with the filmmakers We Are Ronin and Malcolm himself.
Malcolm will be joined by fishermen from Worthing and
their families and the organisers are looking forward to a lively discussion at the end of the evening. The event will finish with the Worthing sea shanty singers celebrating traditional fishing songs with the audience and teaching everyone a fishing tune or two.
The “Last Fisherman” screening is free of charge (donations welcome) and is part of Worthing’s The Last Fisherman Standing project run by local social enterprise We Are FoodPioneers CIC, which seeks to protect and celebrate the fishing heritage in Worthing.
