WWF Special Screening: The End of the Line (PG)
Catch The End of the Line, the world’s first major feature documentary film revealing the devastating impact of overfishing on the oceans directed by Rupert Murray.
Brought to you by WWF, the film explores the effects of our global love affair with fish as a source of food, including the imminent extinction of bluefin tuna, brought about by increasing demand for sushi, and the profound implications of a future world with no fish.
Filmed across the world – from the Straits of Gibraltar to the coasts of Senegal and Alaska to the Tokyo fish market – this captivating documentary features top scientist, indigenous fishermen as well as investigative reporter Charles Clover who confronts politicans and celebrity restaurateurs, who themselves exhibit little regard for the damage they are doing to the oceans.
Scientists predict that the current fishing practices could spell the end of most seafood by 2048! Imagine an ocean without fish. Imagine your meals without seafood. Imagine the global consequences. This is the future if we do not stop, think and act.
Find out how you can help save the fish while you still can pick up a copy of the new WWF Singapore Seafood Guide to help make your fish purchasing / consumption choices.
