Teach A Man To Fish
"Teach a man to fish and he will feed for a lifetime; teach a man to be, and he will know what freedom is." Grant Leigh Saunders is an Aboriginal filmmaker, writer and musician who has always wanted to be a fisherman, just like his father and grandfather. This fishing yarn is set against the backdrop of the beautiful Manning River in central NSW. Despite his promising artistic career, Grant is unsettled and feels there is something missing in his life. As a fair-skinned, middle-aged, Aboriginal man, with a Norwegian wife and two young "Koori-Wegian" kids, Grant is struggling with his identity. Compounding this feeling is that Grant has been away from his home country of Taree for over twenty years.
