NFB Film Club - Bluefin

The National Film Board of Canada Film Club's programming offers up a rich and varied selection of short and feature-length films. 

We will be showing:

Bluefin, 2016 (53 mins.)
In the stunning documentary Bluefin, director John Hopkins crafts a tale of epic stakes set in the “tuna capital of the world.” Filmed in North Lake, Prince Edward Island, Canada, the film explores the baffling mystery of why the normally wary bluefin tuna no longer fear humans. Hopkins documents this phenomenon with breathtaking cinematography and brings the issues into sharp focus, at the heart of which lies a passionate concern for the fate of these giant fish.

Registration is required, call 519-753-2179 to register.
