Fair Weather Films Finale: Sacred Cod

Screening and Q&A 

Friday, August 25, 8:00 pm

SACRED COD is a feature-length documentary that captures the collapse of the historic cod population in New England, delving into the role of overfishing, the impact of climate change, the effect of government policies on fishermen and the fish, and the prospect of a region built on cod having no cod left to fish.

Join Camden International Film Festival, Down to Earth Storytelling Project, and Working Films for this free screening and discussion with local experts to learn more about the fight for this New England Tradition.

In case of rain, we will relocate across the street to the Town Meeting Room.  Watch the website for updates.
