About the Movie
In a cottage in northern Scotland, Megan Boyd twirled bits of feather, fur, silver and gold into elaborate fishing flies -- at once miniature works of art and absolutely lethal. Wherever men and women cast their lines for the mighty Atlantic salmon, her name is whispered in mythic reverence, and stories about her surface and swirl like fairy tales. With breathtaking cinematography and expressive, hand painted animation, Kiss the Water adheres to and escapes from traditional documentary form, spinning the facts and fictions of one woman’s life into a stunning film about craft, devotion, love, and its illusions.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Steel often succeeds in conjuring a contemplative trance, which is especially impressive given the arcane subject matter.
Fresh: What seems at first an impossibly flimsy and meagre documentary subject slowly reveals itself as cine-miniaturism with charm.
Fresh: It makes fishing look an Edenic pastime, with Boyd's iridescent feather/fur/hair creations proving that in a prelapsarian world even salmon can have the fine or fatal sensibility of art connoisseurs.
Fresh: It's a small film, but a quietly affecting one as well.
