Shown as part of the Ocean Film Series

A SEA CHANGE (USA, 2009, 90 min.)

World Premiere  Explore a little-known but critical issue facing ocean life: Rising ocean acidification is threatening fish. A world without fish is hard to imagine and yet, unless widespread awareness is raised to stop ocean acidification, such a catastrophe may play out in a very short time. Combining hard scientific facts and more emotional and cultural ties between fish and humans, we are given a rare insight into the changing chemistry of the oceans. The film is an eye-opener on a little-known crisis requiring urgent action. Made in partnership with Sailors for the Sea. Directed by Barbara Ettinger. Produced by Sven Huseby.

Introduced by Dan Pingaro, CEO and Executive Director, Sailors for the Sea. Panel with filmmakers Barbara Ettinger and star of the film Sven Huseby, Dr. Richard Spinrad, NOAA, Dr. Richard Feely, NOAA and scientist featured in the film, and David Rockefeller, Jr., co-founder, Sailors for the Sea, follows screening. Moderated by Brad Warren, Sustainable Fisheries Project.
