About the Event
Here comes the invitation to our next Movie-Club, which will take place on May 6, 2021 at
6:15 pm on Zoom.
We'll be talking about the movie „Seaspiracy“, which you'll find on Netflix and this is the link
to watch the trailer on Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1Q5CXN7soQg.
This movie directed and starring by Ali Tabrizi is about taking a deep dive into what's causing
the rapidly declining state of the ocean. The film features human impacts on marine life such
as plastic marine debris, ghost nets and fishing around the world. It argues that commercial
fisheries are the main driver of marine ecosystem destruction. Seaspiracy rejects the
concept of sustainable fishing and criticises several marine conservation organisations,
including the Earth Island Institute and its dolphin safe label and the sustainable seafood
certifications of the Marine Stewardship Council. It also criticises efforts by organisations to
reduce household plastic given the impact of ghost nets. It accuses these initiatives of being
a cover-up for the environmental impact of fishing and corruption in the fishing industry.
We would like to invite you to discuss this movie and share your ideas about how to help to
get the oceans cleaner.
To join our event RSVP on our website and we'll send you our zoom invitation.
We hope to see you there!
