#Angling - A short documentary on top fly-fishing name Glenda Powell is garnering plaudits at film festivals around the world.
And as Ellie O'Byrne writes in the Irish Examiner, the film sprang out of an article on the world-champion fly-caster for that very newspaper by ecologist Carl Dixon.
Unwinding is a five-minute short that illustrates Powell's love of angling on the River Blackwater and the nature that surrounds her as she casts her flies.
Inspired by Powell's story after an assignment for the Examiner in 2011, Dixon explains how he completed a filmmaking course to learn the ropes before taking up the camera for the €800 micro-budget film.
And it seems his dedication has paid off, with film festivals as far afield as Washington and California including the short in their selections.
