End of the Line Film at at Audubon Greenwich

01/28/2011 to 01/28/2011

613 Riversville Rd., Greenwich, CT 06831. Phone: (203) 869-5272.

A movie about unsustainable fishing practices and the future of our oceans.  Rupert Murray dives deep to illuminate the cold truth about industrial pillaging of Earth's oceans with his film, "The End of the Line". This is the first major feature documentary film to reveal the devastating effect that global over-fishing is having on fish stocks and the health of our oceans. Filmed over two years, the film follows the indefatigable investigative reporter Charles Clover as he confronts the politicians and celebrity restaurateurs who exhibit little regard for the damage their policies-and their menus-are doing to the oceans. Narrated by Ted Danson and endorsed by and with major marketing support from National Geographic, Greenpeace and the Waitt Family Foundation, "The End of the Line" is a must-see for all who love the ocean and its creatures.With Special Guest: Jamie Pollack, NY Representative for the Pew Charitable Trust's 'National Fisheries Reform Project' and Co-Founder of Shark Savers
