CARPE DIEM: A FISHY TALE (Canada, 2013, 52 min.)

Washington, D.C. Premiere Since it was accidentally released into the Mississippi River 30 years ago, a relentless aquatic invader —the Asian Carp—has been heading north. Famous for their insatiable hunger and their Olympic high jumping, Asian Carp are now only 100 kilometers south of Lake Michigan. Narrated by David Suzuki, Carpe Diem explores a complicated fight, involving a wide array of tools from cross bows to electrodes, against an impressive species of fish, which is really just doing what it does best—surviving. Down south, where the battle has been lost, people are beginning to see the fish as a resource and are starting to eat it. Is this the answer to this Fishy problem? Narrated by David Suzuki. Directed by Scott Dobson. Produced by Charlotte Engel.

Welcome by a representative of the Embassy of Canada. Introduced by Flo Stone, Founder, Environmental Film Festival in the Nation’s Capital. Discussion with filmmaker Scott Dobson follows screening.
