Fishers of the Olifants Estuary

This short video describes the inseparable link between a traditional fishing community and the Olifants River Estuary on the South African west coast. Although there are many challenges facing traditional fishing communities, the focus of this video is just to explore the link of livelihoods and the passing down of fishing knowledge from the elders to younger fishers. This video is a short version of a longer film, exploring in more depth the personal, emotional and cultural links to this incredible estuary system.


Our condolences to all those fishers who have passed on since the making of this short film, may your knowledge and experiences live on through the generations of fishers to come.

Film is in Afrikaans, with English sub-titles
Filmed using Sony EX1 over a 4 day period
