Climate Change & Sustainability Film Series

Sustainable Woodstock hosts a monthly free screening of films and documentaries focused on Climate Change and Sustainability. We do this as a way to foster—in a fun and relaxed environment—a broader awareness of the wide-ranging issues impacting our planet and our future. We often facilitate a panel discussion after the film to explore the issues presented and how we, as individuals and communities, can engage in becoming part of the solution. Sustainable Woodstock hosts this film series in collaboration with Pentangle Arts. Donations go to support Pentangle.

WHAT: LOBSTER WAR Fight over the World’s Richest Fishing Ground

WHEN: Wed. Dec. 9th Film Starts at 6:30 PM

WHERE: Woodstock Town Hall Theater

LOBSTER WAR is an award-winning feature film about a climate-fueled conflict between the United States and Canada over waters that both countries have claimed since the end of the Revolutionary War. The disputed 277 square miles of sea, known as the Gray Zone, were traditionally fished by US lobstermen. But as the Gulf of Maine has warmed faster than nearly any other body of water on the planet, the area’s previously modest lobster population has surged. As a result, Canadians have begun to assert their sovereignty, warring with the Americans to claim the bounty.

A Documentary About Trash Islands in the Oceans

Toxic Garbage Island is an hour-long documentary that shows how the increasing use of the ocean as a garbage dump is slowly destroying ecosystems. Come aboard as the VICE crew takes a cruise to the Northern Gyre in the Pacific Ocean, a spot where currents spin and cycle, churning up tons of plastic into a giant pool of chemical soup, flecked with bits and whole chunks of refuse that cannot break down in nature and that accumulate into massive islands of trash!

Free screening hosted by Sustainable Woodstock in collaboration with Pentangle Arts Council. Donations will be accepted and will go to support Pentangle.
