Description:

"Almost every day of the year some 10 trawlers set out from the twin ports of Grimby and Hull, England, for the Arctic fishing grounds to return three weeks later with their cargo of deep sea fish. This film is a record of one such voyage with sound effects recorded on location. This will generate a nostalgic effervescence for those lovers of deep sea fishing and all will wish to join in the adventure without having to share in the work and inconvenience. The film moves with interest and excitement, a treat for all" PSA Journal, Oct. 1961, 47.

Description:

“1975 yılında yapılmıştır. İngiltere'nin İrlanda’daki sömürüsü, politik mahkumları, özgürlük mücadelesi hakkında 5 dakikalık bir filmdir. Dönemin görsel materyal azlığı koşullarında bol fotoğrafla ve az görüntülü bilgilendirme amaçlı bir filmdir.” Sinematek.tv: http://sinematek.tv/davut-ile-golyat/ (1 November 2019).

“It was made in 1975. This 5-minute-long film is about the British exploitation in Ireland, the political struggle [of the Irish people], and the fight for freedom. Because of the lack of visual material at the time of production, it purposefully benefits from the use of [the historical] photographs as counter-information.” Sinematek.tv: http://sinematek.tv/davut-ile-golyat/ (1 November 2019).
