Just before Cutter was born, his parents sold everything they owned, quit their jobs and bought a 32- foot cutter-rigged sailboat for which he is named. Hodierne spent the first 3 years of his life sailing in the South Pacific ocean.
Hodierne dropped out of college at 19, to direct music videos in Washington DC. By age 22, he was touring the world with U2 on the biggest rock n' roll tour in music history, as the band’s ‘filmmaker on the road’ -- making films for the U2-360 Tour.
After this, he went to East Africa to research Somali piracy and direct the short film ‘Fishing Without Nets’. Shot on the coast of Kenya and cast with local Somalis, the film tells the story of a struggling fisherman who turns to piracy on the high seas. The short film won the Grand Jury Prize at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival and many other awards.
Cutter teamed up with VICE to direct a feature length version of “Fishing Without Nets” -- Vice's first fictional feature film. The movie premiered at Sundance in 2014 where Cutter won Best Director. “Fishing Without Nets” was released by VICE Films & 20th Century Fox.
Hodierne is working on a new film called “Otzi”. Set in the Austrian Alps, the film chronicles the final days in the life of a prehistoric man who was murdered, and found by hikers 5,000 years later, perfectly preserved in the ice.
