Little Fish... Big Fish...
(2008, documentary, video, colour, 29 min.)
Director of photography:
This is a salutary tale of fish poachers and fish protectors. Gangs of organised thieves take fish in industrial quantities from the river along with a single poacher in a checked shirt. A lonely pensioner, János (with a monthly income of 18 euros), sets off in the direction of the same river to literally fish for his supper. A couple of fishing wardens do their best to stop this illegal activity but only manage to catch János and penalise him according to the exact letter of the law. This film attempts to portray a Hungarian universe and not suggest that “big fish” eat “little fish” but that “big fish” flout the law and slip through the net while the “little fish” get hooked every time.
