Since his directorial debut with 2006’s controversial Tribeca-screening documentary “The Bridge,” Eric Steel has kept relatively quiet, with only a producing credit on the Julia Child biopic “Julie and Julia” to his name in the years since. But now 7 years later, Steel is returning once again to Tribeca with his second documentary feature “Kiss The Water,” and we have an exclusive poster of his new film ahead of its world premiere during this month’s festival.
“Kiss The Water,” follows renowned fly fishing expert Megan Boyd, living remotely in Scotland’s northern highlands, whose self-taught and made fishing flies have brought her great acclaim and reverence, making her something of a legend among fly-fishing enthusiasts. With admirers as distinguished as Prince Charles, among others, she has throughout her life become internationally renowned for her startling abilities, which Steel documents through interviews, animations, and stunning images of the landscape that she calls home.
The film will have its festival premiere on April 22, with multiple other screenings planned throughout the following week in Tribeca. Check out the new poster below.
