1. THE END OF THE LINE: Imagine a world without fish
Saturday, December 12th (2:00pm) at City Cinema, Charlottetown, PEI
The End of the Line is the first feature documentary revealing the impact of overfishing on our oceans, and demonstrates firsthand the effects our massive appetite for seafood is having. According to Kenneth Turan of the LA Times, it is “…an apocalyptic documentary that is as beautiful as it is damning.”
The film examines the imminent extinction of Bluefin tuna, being fueled by increasing Western demand for sushi; sheds light on the effect consumer demand is having on marine life, such as the creation of a massive overpopulation of jellyfish; and it explores the severe implications of a future without fish.
Though appearing prophetic, the film also offers realistic solutions that are simple and practical. Filmed across the world – from the Straits of Gibraltar to the coasts of Senegal, and Alaska to the Tokyo fish market – The End of the Line features top scientists, indigenous fishermen and fisheries enforcement officials, and is a wake-up call to the world; in less than thirty years there may be no seafood left.
