The Oyster Divers
I’ve been looking forward to this documentary since I saw that it was premiering at the 2014 Food Film Festival. It was produced by the good people at Show Love, who consistently make amazing videos. They go all over telling great stories, and for this one they got some nice underwater footage too. I had always wondered what scavenging for oysters looked like down there.
Oysters are of course a bit of a fascination here on the Hand & Eye. And even though I disagree that seafood is the last wild food, I appreciate the sentiment. It's a resource that needs protecting for sure. This piece does great justice to the guys who go out and dive for oysters day in day out.
