DIRECTOR'S STATEMENT

In almost every media depiction that I saw, fishers are tightly

related to man. A very masculine, rough, and challenging job.

Well, where’s the women's role here?

 

In most fishers' families, women also play the active role, but since in many

cases women work in preparing and processing stage, they are only seen as helpers and not fishers. Though hard and dangerous the job they had been doing, women in the fishery didn’t receive the credits they deserved.

Seen as “helpers” by the government, recognition and protection

is also a long and winding process for fisherwomen to have.

 

With this film, I want to shed some light on fisherwomen. I hope this film

can be a collective memory in a form of an audiovisual about their hardships.
