About the film Swiss Coast
Swiss Coast portraits two small-scale coastal fishermen in the North of the Netherlands; Jan and Barbara. In the Waddensea they harvest food from nature by hand. A way of fishing that dates from prehistoric times. The film shows how the river Rhine connects the Swiss Alps with the Wadden Sea. Nutrients in the water from the mountains form healthy breeding ground for the oysters, mussels and fish that the fishing couple catches in the Wadden Sea and then sells in Zürich.
Amidst the overwhelming beauty of nature, on the border between land and sea, Jan and Barbara compel us to think, through the eyes of the Swiss filmmaker Andrea Pellerani, about the relationship we humans have with nature. Nature is not separate from us: we are part of it and we depend on it.
