DATE: March 24, 2017
TIME: 7:30 – 9:30pm
MOVIE: Of the Sea Film
GUEST: Mischa Hedges, filmmaker, from Santa Cruz
COST: free, donations appreciated
This new documentary brings a local Santa Cruz angle to the challenges and opportunities of a fishing industry hoping to balance jobs and environmental sustainability. “The industry isn’t dying, it’s changing,” according to filmmaker Mischa Hedges, who will be at Fourth Friday to lead a discussion following the film.
Mischa adds, “Our main goal for the film is to reconnect people who eat seafood with the places and people who catch it, and hopefully get some conversations started about local seafood.”
Don’t miss this delicious opportunity to dive in and learn about our local fisheries and how dedicated folks are working to help them thrive, and to find out how you can help support them.
