A Film About Craft, Devotion, Love
In a cottage in northern Scotland, Megan Boyd twirled bits of feather, fur, silver and gold into elaborate fishing flies – miniature works of art and absolutely lethal to the fish they are designed to catch. Wherever men and women cast their lines for the mighty Atlantic salmon, her name is whispered in mythic reverence, and stories about her surface and swirl like fairy tales. With breathtaking cinematography and expressive, hand-painted animation, Eric Steel’s ‘Kiss the Water’ both adheres to and escapes from traditional documentary form, spinning the facts and fictions of one woman’s life into a stunning film about craft, devotion, love and illusion. The American Museum of Fly Fishing will be hosting a screening of ‘Kiss the Water’ on Sunday, February 16, at 10 a.m. at the Village Picture Shows Cinema, 263 Depot Street, Manchester Center. Tickets will be for sale at the Cinema or the through the Museum a 4070 Main Street, by phone or at amff.com. Tickets are $10 for Museum members and $13 for non-members.
