Movie sneak preview: End of the Line

20 January 2009

End of the Line, the world’s first major documentary about the devastating effect of overfishing, premiered at the Sundance Film Festival yesterday. The doco examines the imminent extinction of bluefin tuna, brought on by increasing western demand for sushi; the impact on marine life, resulting in the huge overpopulation of jellyfish; and the profound implications of a future world with no fish that would bring certain mass starvation. The trailer below promises a riveting glimpse into the future of our oceans and what we can do now to address the problem.
