CAUGHT

On average, 10,000 dolphins are slaughtered every year by unregulated commercial fishing on France’s Atlantic coast in the Bay of Biscay — twice as many as all other countries combined. Sea Shepherd France and the crew of the M/Y Age of Union are on the front lines, fighting to expose deadly fishing methods to get the government’s attention in any way possible. CAUGHT reveals the shocking consequences of excess consumerism, depleting oceanic ecosystems, while marine life are killed in massive fishing nets. These harmful practices would never be allowed on land where the public could see, and yet, there is still a lack of economic and political will to enforce marine laws and regulations. Through a raw, unfiltered look at boots-on-the-ground activism, the film pinpoints potential catastrophic ripple effects of overfishing, jeopardizing sustainability for all life on earth in the foreseeable future. There is, however, hope for protecting and restoring critically threatened oceans before it’s too late.

The Corridor

When he was three years old, Dominique Bikaba’s family was expelled from their ancestral land in the eastern Democratic Republic of the Congo. He has spent the past thirty years fighting for the rights of Indigenous and local peoples to protect their traditional lands and the gorillas that share the forests with them. Today, Dominique and a team of international partners are on an ambitious mission to secure twenty-one interconnected land titles, which would establish one of the largest wildlife corridors of community-managed forests on the planet. In doing so, they are empowering local communities to protect the habitat of the critically endangered eastern lowland gorilla and conserving the all-important Congo Basin Rainforest — the second lung of the Earth — for generations to come. This is 21st-century conservation in action.
