A Marine's Guide to Fishing

About the Film

“A Marine’s Guide to Fishing” is a 15-minute fiction film telling the story of a young veteran’s return to his old job in a New England dockyard on his first ‘Alive Day’ – the one year anniversary of the day he was severely injured overseas.

Written and directed by Maine-native Nicholas Brennan, the film stars 27-year-old Pittsfield, Maine resident Matthew Pennington, who served three tours of duty with the U.S. Army in Iraq and Afghanistan before suffering an injury in 2006 very similar to the one endured by the character he plays.

The film is ultimately a story about hope and healing and how we can all find our way back to life with the support of those around us.

The film was shot on location in South Portland, Falmouth and Kennebunkport, Maine.
