Film on over-fishing screening March 21 in Peterborough
“The End of the Line,” a documentary film about the over-fishing of our oceans, will be shown on Wednesday at 7 p.m. in the parish hall of the Unitarian Universalist Church.
The film, which had its world premiere at the Sundance Film Festival, is second in a series being presented jointly by the church’s Social Justice Committee and the Monadnock Citizen Issues Project.
This is the first major feature documentary film revealing the impact of over-fishing on our oceans. In the film we see first-hand the effects of our global love affair with fish as food. Filmed across the world and featuring top scientists, indigenous fishermen and fisheries enforcement officials, this film is a wake-up call to the world. Scientists predict that if we continue fishing as we are now, we will see the end of most seafood by 2048.
Attendance is free; donations are appreciated. A discussion session will follow.
