WATERMEN (USA, 1969, 63 min.)

In 1965 New York filmmaker Holly Fisher focused her camera on the annual skipjack race on the Chesapeake Bay, and on skipjack captain Art Daniels. Over the next three years, she and her co-director, Romas Slezas, filmed Daniels, his family and his colleagues oystering and crabbing and living on the Chesapeake. She tells a simple but powerful story of watermen’s lives. Directed by Holly Fisher and Romas Slezas.
