Stolen Fish

Varastatud kala

In the Gambia, the smallest country of mainland Africa, fish is now being powdered up by Chinese corporations and exported to Europe and China to feed animals in industrial farming. As a result, Gambians are being deprived of their primary source of protein, overfishing is depleting marine ecosystems. The film follows Abou, Mariama and Paul, three Gambians who share intimate stories of daily struggle, anger, hope and longing for their loved ones. The first film on Gambia’s fishmeal factories offering a unique insight into untold drivers of migration and the role played by women in new economic systems. There’s so much to worry about in the world but “Stolen Fish“ is a 30 minute microcosm of what is wrong with it.
