Backrow Film Series - "The End of the Line"
The Arts and Education Council of Chattanooga will show "The End of the Line" as the first part of their Back Row Film Series. The Chattanooga premiere of "The End of the Line" will be in the Tennessee Aquarium River Journey Auditorium on Thursday, May 6th at 6:00 pm.
This film is described as, "the first documentary to spotlight the devastating effects of overfishing. Advances in fishing technology mean whole species of wild fish are under threat and the most important stocks we eat are predicted to be in a state of collapse by 2050. The film points the finger at those most to blame, including celebrity chefs, and shows what we can do about it. This is not just a film, it is also a campaign - for sustainable consumption of fish, for marine protected areas to allow the sea to recover, and for a new ethic of responsible fishing."
Tickets for this special film screening are $10 for the general public, $5 for Tennessee Aquarium members.
