50mins, 2006, dir. Loren Slater

A sad sympathetic film which throws up key questions about the lack of scruples, legislation and protection that come with the influx of economic migrants’ THE GUARDIAN

This film chronicles the aftermath of the tragedy, from the horror as dawn broke, to recent attempts by locals to prevent overfishing of the cockle beds. Most interestingly, Slater interviews the pickers themselves, whose ambition combines with the fear of the gangs. The story is one of greed and great sadness’. THE DAILY TELEGRAPH
