'Una - the One' is a powerful documentary about the 'holy river' of Bosnia-Herzogovina, the Una. This river, which the Romans found so beautiful that they named it 'The One', is home to a remarkable diversity of habitats, and an equally large diversity of fish species, including brown trout, grayling and hucho, also known as the danube salmon. These fish, which are more or less unique to the region, can grow to astonishing sizes and present a challenge to any fly angler. But like many rivers in Europe, the shadow of a proposed damming project, which would dramatically alter the river's flow, looms large, and with this one of the last unadulterated hucho habitats in the world is under threat. Can a group of passionate anglers save the river from irreparable damage?

A stunningly moving film about 90-year-old World War II veteran Frank Moore returning to Normandy, some 70 years after he first went there as a part of the US Army in 1944, this time with a very different goal: to catch a salmon from the Normandy stream that he once crossed as a soldier. Fishing evokes all kinds of emotions - joy, frustration, elation to name just three - but this film is about more than fishing: it is about tenacity, and how even the terrors of war can't quash that part of an angler's soul that leaps when they see a new stretch of water. It is about remembrance, and how even the bleakest times can give rise to something truly special. In this instance, the feelings that fishing brings to the surface are ones of admiration, astonishment even, at the strength of the human spirit, and the power of fishing to help people through even the darkest times. Above all this is a study of the eternal, unconditional love that is shared by Frank and his wife Jeanne, and the strength that this gives them both.
