Miracle Fishing: Kidnapped Abroad

Miracle Fishing: Kidnapped Abroad

Kidnapped by FARC, a drug cartel in Colombia, father, husband and beloved environmental journalist Tom Hargrove is held for a $6,000,000 ransom. A turbulent government and threats of guerrilla warfare stop the US government and Hargrove’s workforce from engaging in open dialogue, leaving all negotiations to be facilitated by his family. Miles Hargrove, Tom’s son, captured the gruelling process all on film.

20 years since the incident, Miles and his family have collated, processed and presented the event in a true crime, found-footage documentary unlike any other put to screen. The impulsive decision-making, psychological trauma and unrelenting love of the family come to life in raw, emotional and breathtaking cam-corded footage. An extraordinary feat of documentary filmmaking, Miracle Fishing is an astonishing act of cinematic catharsis that only the Hargroves can ever understand.
