 "The Windfisherman" Review 
Add to favorites

This unique story from previous Crystal Heart Award-winner Anna McRoberts follows the life of a windfisherman, a young man who lives in one of the windiest towns and fishes daily for lost items and returns them to their rightful owner. Unfortunately, windfishing isn't in his heart and he lives in the shadow of a legendary windfishing father. One day, he lives the town for the relative calm of Stillsville.

While "THE WINDFISHERMAN" is essentially a one-note, 12-minute short, the film's dry and lighthearted tone combine wonderfully with a Western-themed production design to create a film that stays with you long after the credits have rolled.  .
