22 february, 2018
Today, February 22 at 18:00, in the Liepaja museum, 16/18, Kurmajas prospekts, will be organised event and documental movies` evening: “Profession: fisherman”. The event is organized within the framework of the exhibition "Port of Liepaja 320, Liepaja SEZ 20".
Although we live next to the Baltic Sea and the profession of fisherman is old and rich in traditions, this is not an easy work, and it is often difficult to reckon with many natural phenomena such as heavy wind, high waves, icing, and so on.
According to the management of several fishery companies, work at sea is interesting, but requires strength, physical strength and preparedness for challenges. Unfortunately, nowadays, fewer young people choose the fisherman's profession. During the event, the leader of the Hydrographic Group of the Liepaja SEZ, Dainis Engelis and Captain of the pilot's ship “Ausma” Oskars Kadegis, who are also experienced fishermen, will share their experience of daily work in the sea and on fishing as a calling of life.
Within the framework of the event, two documentaries made by Ivars Seleckis about fishing, everyday life of fishermen, catches and storms will be presented - "Coast" and "Salty life". Before demonstration of movies, film director Ivars Seleckis will share his memories about filming.
The movie “Coast” (1963) tells about the everyday life of several fishermen's villages on the coast of the Baltic Sea, while the movie "Salty life" (1996) shows the life and everyday life of Pape, Jūrmalciems and Bernati fishermen.
The event is organized within the framework of the exhibition "Port of Liepaja 320, Liepaja SEZ 20".
