IFI SCHOOLS: ATLANTIC

Director: Risteárd Ó Domhnaill

Ireland/Canada/Norway • 2016 Documentary • 80 mins


Can the fishing industry be sustainable in light of global economic and environmental challenges? Activist and filmmaker Risteárd Ó Domhnaill (The Pipe) looks at three different fishing communities whose livelihoods are seriously under threat. On Arranmore, super-trawlers hoover up dwindling stocks. In Norway the search for new oil fields threatens maritime life. In Newfoundland, an oil boom has hit, closing off the fishermens’ opportunities for work. Narrated by Brendan Gleeson, this hard-hitting documentary reveals the waste and greed that threaten one of the oldest industries in the world.

Director Risteárd Ó Domhnaill will introduce the film.
