Film Screening: Watermen

November 5, 2014 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

WatermenFilmJoin us at The Barrier Islands Center for a special screening of the “Watermen” film.

In this third chapter of his acclaimed Eastern Shore trilogy, Academy Award-nominated filmmaker James Spione explores the lives of the last independent fishermen to work the waters of the Atlantic and Chesapeake Bay.

Told exclusively in the voices of the hardy individuals that have made a life’s work of fishing, crabbing and oystering off Virginia’s wild coast, Spione’s intimate first-person stories bring us inside the deeply personal challenges and triumps that define life on the water. Yet the implications of these watermen’s struggles reverberate, highlighting the decline of ocean fisheries worldwide and the daunting challenges faced by societies around the world to protect and preserve the waters that sustain us all.
