MY VILLAGE MY LOBSTER (USA, 2012, 60 min.)
Washington, D.C. Premiere Filmed over four years, the film connects the lives of individuals and communities involved in the complex and incredibly perilous lobster fishing industry. It’s the powerful and harrowing story of the indigenous divers who risk their lives for the most lucrative resource of Nicaragua’s Miskito coast, the Caribbean spiny lobster. This action-driven feature documentary is set against the backdrop of the visually stunning Caribbean in one of the most remote places in the Americas: La Mosquitia, the largest tract of rainforest north of the Amazon. Included is footage aboard a commercial lobster diving vessel and from the remote Miskito Keys – the fabled turtle hunting grounds of the Miskito Indians. Directed by Joshua Wolff. Produced by Brad Allgood, Nomading Films and Fall Line Pictures.
Discussion with filmmaker Joshua Wolff and Matias Nochetto, Director of Operations and Outreach, Divers Alert Network (DAN).
