Current Sea
CAFILM STREAMING ROOM Fri, Oct 9, 2020 - Sun, Oct 18, 2020
Two very different men—Matt Blomberg, an Australian investigative journalist, and Paul Ferber, a former British police officer—find new lives separately in Cambodia and become unexpectedly bound together by a common cause: putting a stop to illegal fishing by creating a marine conservation area in the Gulf of Thailand. Over the course of several years, Blomberg, Ferber, and local activists defiantly bring to light the dangerous and illegal fishing epidemic that is leaving the sea with almost no fish for the Cambodian fishermen whose livelihood depends on what they catch. Like Richard Ladkani’s Sea of Shadows—one of the highlights of DocLands 2019—director Christopher Smith frames Current Sea as a high-stakes environmental thriller, full of urgency, intrigue, and suspense.

From remote lands and welcoming cultures, from immigration to innovation—we give you nothing but the facts in this program of DocLands short films! After a near-death experience, an Icelandic photographer and former kayaker discovers a newfound passion for surfing and a new perspective worth living for with the birth of his daughter in Chris Burkard’s Unnúr (US 2019, 16 min). Set in one of the most remote and inaccessible volcanic island chains in the world, a scrappy Russian marine biologist encounters sea lion chaos, joyous raptures, and ultimately a greater hope for the earth in Taylor Rees’ From Kurils with Love (US 2020, 24 min).
