Honestly, we went to Iceland to catch big fish. It was that simple. We wanted to bask in the late Arctic sun while bringing a dreamy meter long Atlantic salmon to hand. We wanted to drink whiskey afterwards, go to bed and do it again everyday we could. What surprised us wasn’t our ability to check the aforementioned mission off the list, it was the insignificance that those goals held compared to what we ACTUALLY discovered. The Chase: a tiny film is an ode to the friendships and experiences shared while chasing our passions.
The Chase is a short film that we feel encapsulates the most important part of us going to Iceland last summer. Yes, we made a 45 minute film and a festival edit that has toured the globe but this minute and a half is the soul of what we did and discovered. This is exactly what we’d like to share with you

In the Great Lakes, legend says trout grew coats of fur to stay warm in the cold depths. In the Colorado River, folklore says it was because of hair tonic being dumped in the water. In Iceland, they are a scourge sent to punish humankind for their wicked ways.
As fantastic as it sounds, it turns out the mythical fur-bearing trout is no jackalope – they actually exist.

Everybody agrees that fish is healthy. In 40 years, its global consumption has doubled. Each year, the market needs to find more fishes and new ways of production. Where does the fish of our daily sushi come from? How is it fed? In which water does it live? A dramatic investigation about healthy food...or maybe not?
