Seaspiracy: World Ocean’s Day Special Screening

  • 10 June 2021
  • 19:00 - 21:30
  • EF | Education First, Shanghai

Green Initiatives' 131st film screening is a special feature in support of June 7th, celebrated each year as World Oceans' Day. Seaspiracy is a 2021 documentary film about the environmental impact of fishing.

ABOUT THE FILM

Directed by and starring Ali Tabrizi, a British filmmaker who was also co-creator of the groundbreaking documentary, Cowspiracy, this film is a follow-up that illuminates alarming -- and not widely known -- truths about the widespread environmental destruction to our oceans caused by human behavior.

Tabrizi initially set out to celebrate his beloved ocean, but instead found himself examining the harm that humans inflict upon the vulnerable seas. From plastics and fishing gear polluting the waters to the irreparable damage of bottom trawling and by-catch, to illegal fishing and devastating hunting practices, humanity is wreaking havoc on marine life and, by extension, the entire planet.

What Tabrizi ultimately uncovered not only challenges notions of sustainable fishing but will shock anyone who cares about the wonders of ocean life, as well as the future of the planet and our place on it.
