Join us on September 10 for Lobster War. This must-watch, award-winning feature-length documentary film about the 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.
The film is free and open to the public, and will be followed by Q&A with director David Abel.
Schoodic Institute will be offering a locally sourced dinner, by reservation, at 5:30 pm prior to the 7 pm showing. Cost is $50 per person and includes preferred seating at Moore Auditorium. To learn more about dinner and the movie, click here.
