Followed by a panel discussion with film Director Ian Cheney
Sponsored by the University of Maine Darling Marine Center and Coastal Rivers. View the film, then join a panel discussion on March 2.
“In a series of lyrical portraits, THE LONG COAST illuminates the stories of Maine’s seafolk, those whose lives and livelihoods are inextricably connected to the ocean. This atmospheric film shows the beauty, intimacy, and uncertainty that coastal dwellers face in rooting their lives in the ocean, particularly as human actions — from overfishing, to aquaculture, to warming seas — confront Maine and its people with profound change.”
Participants will have online access to screen The Long Coast at their convenience during the 48-hours prior to the online panel discussion at 7:00 pm EST March 2nd.
Our conversation will be with the film’s Emmy-nominated & Peabody Award-winning documentary filmmaker Ian Cheney, Darling Marine Center Director Heather Leslie, and Coastal Rivers Director of Education & Citizen Science Sarah Gladu, along with others.
