“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 January 2009. The film examines the imminent extinction of bluefin tuna and other popular seafood favorites; the impact on marine life resulting in huge overpopulation of jellyfish; and the profound implications of a future world with no fish that would bring certain mass starvation. “The End of the Line” points to solutions that are simple and doable, but political will and activism are crucial to solve this international problem.

Following the screening will be a discussion. Speakers include:
