BioDiversity Week - Film screening of documentary "Atlantic" with introduction by visual artist Monica de Bath.

From the maker of The Pipe, Risteard Ó Domhnaill’s new film Atlantic takes on the powerful interests carving up Ireland’s ocean resources. Emmy Award-winning actor Brendan Gleeson narrates the film, which was shot across Ireland, Norway and Newfoundland (Canada) by Scannáin Inbhear (Inver Films). Atlantic follows the fortunes of three small fishing communities as they struggle to maintain their way of life in the face of mounting economic and ecological challenges. As the major oil companies drive deeper into their fragile seas, and the world’s largest fishing companies push fish stocks to the brink, coastal people and the species they rely on may be reaching a point of no return. Pre-screening introduction by visual artist Monica de Bath.
