The End of the Line - Monday Night Movie

Event Description

When you snap the tuna tin open, have you ever wondered if the ocean will run out of fish?

Filmmaker Rupert Murray offers an in-depth look at the crisis in the world's oceans in the documentary End of the Line, in which experts discuss some of the key factors behind the looming shortage -- increased demand for endangered species, irresponsible methods employed by major fishing lines, lax enforcement of current regulations -- and what can be done to head off the famine before it's too late.

The End of the Line documentary casts the question 'are our oceans being overfished'  and answers it with brutal and frightening clarity - start imagining a world without seafood.

At current rates, the ocean's stocks will be depleted by the middle of the century, the film reveals.

Touted the inconvenient truth on the ocean, this little-known, barely-screened documentary presents hard evidence and marine experts in a neatly wrapped take-home message for every shopper.

Smart, industrial and high-tech “fishing” of the ocean by big corporations and rich hunters is exposed in all its bloody glory.

This is a hard-hitting film dressed in graphic images and powerful, unarguable statistics already being felt by poor coastal communities working inside a self-destructing industry.

“Man is at war with the ocean and is winning,” says French-born marine-biologist Daniel Pauly.

The film travels to China, Gibraltar, Malta, Senegal and Japan to reveal corporate iniquities and local disparities caused by overfishing. There is some impressive fishy footage, in the water and out of it, at upmarket restaurants such as Nobu.

It urges for a global reduction of fishing to prevent the industry from collapsing to a point where it is no longer viable or profitable.

It also points the finger at democracy for not making the political changes that it must.

This is a documentary that will change the way you think about seafood and give you the  power of knowledge to make a change.
 
Questions and answers will follow the movie session with a special GUEST SPEAKER.
