Join 18 Reasons for our monthly film screening- this month we are tackling the issues around global overfishing.
Imagine an ocean without fish. Imagine your meals without seafood. Imagine the global consequences. This is the future if we do not stop, think and act. The End of the Line, the first major feature documentary film revealing the impact of overfishing on our oceans, had its world premiere at the Sundance Film Festival in the World Cinema Documentary Competition. Sundance took place in Park City, Utah, January 15-25, 2009. In the film we see firsthand the effects of our global love affair with fish as food.
After the film the audience will have a discussion with Bill Wall and Barron Bixler. This discussion will provide the audience an opportunity to ask questions about the film and see what changes are being made locally to stop overfishing.
Bill Wall is the Business Project Manager for FishWise, a sustainable seafood consultancy based in Santa Cruz, California. He works with Bi-Rite and a number of other progressive retailers nationwide to help them source and sell more environmentally responsible seafood. Barron Bixler, the current 18 Reasons artists, witnessed firsthand the effects and consequences of overfishing from his time spent in Northeastern Brazil.
