Fly Fishing in the Anthropocene

21st August 2017

page1-960x713.jpg

The Ozernaya River winds serpentine-like through a remote corner of Kamchatka in Far East Russia. In one of the most intact eco-systems left in the Northern Pacific, rainbow trout eat mice for breakfast and the salmon run in the hundred of thousands. This bounty attracts two kinds of people; those who want to protect, and those who want to exploit. Rampant salmon poaching is big business on Kamchatka, and once the salmon are gone, entire eco-systems collapse. “Fly Fishing in the Anthropocene” explores how fly fishing can help protect the wilderness, and celebrates the beauty and wonder of one of the most vibrant places on earth.

(An earlier version of this film was called “At the End of a Rainbow”)

The White-throated Dipper

30th April 2015

This february I found myself thinking that I live in a quite dead part of the world. The weather was depressing pretty much every day and I constantly thought of the parts of the world where the leaves are green and the nature is alive. But instead of leaving Umeå I tried to find something beautiful in the nature here.

I decided to head out to shore of the baltic sea, hoping to spot a seal. On my way down to the sea I crossed a little creek and stumbled upon this white-throated dipper. I followed the bird for some hours and made this little film. It felt good to hang out with someone who also stayed here during the most boring days of the year.

I’ve always thought that nature filming would be a good interest to grow old with so I decided to start. Hopefully I make something even more pretentious soon.
