PREMIERE FREE FILM SCREENING — Entangled

Thursday, October 15, 2020

  • Film Screening: 6:30-7:45
  • Live Q&A with the film’s Director, David Abel: 7:45-8:30pm

Please join us for Vermont’s premiere screening of ENTANGLED — a new, feature-length film about how climate change has accelerated a collision between the nation’s most valuable fishery, one of the world’s most endangered species, and a federal agency mandated to protect both. The film chronicles the efforts to protect North Atlantic right whales from extinction, the impacts of those efforts on the lobster industry, and how NOAA Fisheries has struggled to balance the vying interests. Entangled, from the makers of Lobster War and Sacred Cod, was named a finalist for a 2020 Jackson Wild award, known as the Oscars of nature films.

The Upper Valley Climate Change & Sustainability Film Series is made possible by the generous support from underwriters, Mascoma Bank and Vermont Community Foundation, and sponsors: Mark D. Knott DDS, The Ellaway Group and Unicorn.

The trailer can be viewed at our on Vimeo:
