The Shadow Nette is a traditional fishing device that projects the silhouette of the fisherman. It is these projections that attract the innocent prey, drawing them close to be captured in nets. Shadow Nettes follows one Shadow Nette Fisherman as he attempts to teach the operation of the device to his teenage son. The film crew were given special permission to track the fishing family and witness the strange rituals, capturing them on film for the first time. Some parts of the most secretive rituals were off limits, and have been recreated by the film makers, based on sketches and notation.
