With over 90% of American seafood imported from other countries, most consumers are blissfully ignorant of the grave threat the global seafood trade poses to local fishing communities and public health. In response to this, a movement of local communities, pioneering fishers, and celebrated chefs work to reinvent the model of demand to provide locally sourced, safe fish to seafood lovers. This incredibly informative documentary asks viewers if they really know where their food comes while revealing the importance of supporting local food economies.
Discussion with directors Adam Jones and Darby Duffin, and subject Russell Sherman, moderated by Paul Freedman (UVA) to follow.
