Fishing Film – “A Fish Story” (2/24/10)


On this national day of protest and awareness, come share in the tale of two women who lead their communities in a battle for control of the ocean. Angela Sanfilippo of Gloucester, Massachusetts, and Shareen Davis of Chatham, Massachusetts were born into fishing families and married men who continue to make a living from the sea. Fishing defines who they are and has sustained their communities for generations. But their way of life is threatened when a powerful coalition of national environmental groups file a lawsuit that could put hundreds of fishermen out of business. Three hundred years of fishing tradition and the health of the ocean hangs in the balance.

Courtney Hayes, one of the producer-directors of the film, will present the film and host a Q&A after.

Directed by Courtney Hayes and Tim Gallagher; Not Rated; 60 minutes
