Sea Change Film Shorts 2020
November 15 @ 8:00 am - November 23 @ 5:00 pm
The Center for Coastal Studies goes virtual for its first ever short film festival as part of its “Sea Change 2020” fall calendar!
Sea Change Film Shorts will be available to stream free online anytime starting November 15 through November 23, 2020.
Hosted by NPR/WBUR’s Barbara Moran, this one-hour special will feature three short documentaries – including the award-winning Spinnaker – as well as a lively panel discussion with CCS scientists regarding the future of our oceans.
Registered ticket holders are also granted access to the Sea Chest, a collection of topical short films curated by the CCS staff. Corporate sponsors for Sea Change 2020 include Willie’s Superbrew, We Need A Vacation, Cape Light Compact, and Cape Clasp.
“Spinnaker” focuses on the story of the film’s namesake whale, who the Center for Coastal Studies tracked from her birth to her death and across three entanglement events. Spinnaker’s life is a rare example where marine biologists were able to see how deeply entanglement can impact the lives of today’s whales. Her story is not an isolated one and represents the challenges that many marine animals now face after years of pollution and degradation threaten to collapse the once-thought to be indestructible ocean systems.
