Fishers of men (Migrant Offshore Aid Station Foundation and its artists, 2017, 72 Min)
The international non-governmental organization, Migrant Offshore Aid Station (MOAS) was established in 2014, by Christopher and Regina Catrambone who believe that no one deserves to die at sea, and they work tirelessly to ensure that no one does! Since its inception, MOAS has rescued over 37,000 people from the world’s deadliest maritime routes. On the 19 June 2017, MOAS’s documentary, Fishers of Men premiered at the third edition of the Valletta Film Festival. A discussion followed the screening, where the public had the opportunity to engage with the film director and MOAS members of staff. This documentary was filmed over several years and closely portrays what MOAS stands for. During some scenes, the camera focuses on what the media does not, the grim reality of death, pain and panic that migrants and refugees face on their treacherous voyages at sea, in search for a better life. Watching this film should restore one’s faith in humanity, it is powerful and reveals an unfiltered reality of what maritime search and rescue entails. Christopher Catrambone asks you: Do you care about that person?
