IN FADING LIGHT, The Side Cinema, Thursday, 25. July 2019

AMBER drama set in the declining North Shields fishing industry, for which Amber bought and ran a 63 foot anchor seine netter, and local fishermen auditioned and trained the actors.
Actors coming for auditions found themselves at sea for days, gutting fish. When the story required a storm sequence, cast, crew and fishermen set sail, into the teeth of a force 9 gale, tripods anchored to the deck. Writer Tom Hadaway had a lifetime’s experience on the fish quay. Filmmakers and actors brought a commitment to authenticity that was almost heroic.
Amber artists worked with yr 5 pupils from Collingwood Primary School to explore the drama and dangers of the fishing Industry, working with the local community to produce a new documentary inspired by work from the AmberSide archive.
