Environmental Film Series: The End of the Line

Event information
Venue:Wolfe University Center Theater

The School of Environment, Arts and Society will be screening the critically acclaimed documentary, The End of the Line. The feature documentary film, which reveals the impact of overfishing on the world’s oceans, had its premiere at the 2009 Sundance Film Festival. The film examines the effects of the global love affair with fish as food and the profound implications of a future world with no fish that could bring certain mass starvation. The End of the Line follows investigative reporter Charles Clover across the Straits of Gibraltar to the coasts of Senegal and Alaska to the Tokyo fish market – featuring top scientists, indigenous fishermen and fisheries enforcement officials. The screening will be followed by a brief discussion and Q&A led by Biology professor, Dr. Kevin Boswell.
