Debut filmmaker Cutter Hodierne talks to Indiewire about shooting his film Fishing Without Nets with non-actors on a boat in Somali waters.

We would base stories off of the people that we were casting; we would feel out somebody, and maybe change things once we knew who was going to be speaking the words. There is this scene where the pirates convert somebody to Islam. That was a story that a hostage told us. We had a hostage with us while we shot it.”
