EOTL_POSTER

Don’t miss the opportunity to see the updated documentary The End of the Line based on the critically acclaimed book by Charles Clover. A Q&A session with Mr. Clover will be held after the film. Labelled the Biggest Problem you’ve Never Heard of, The End of the Line explores the environmental impact of overfishing. It pleads with consumers, politicians and fishermen to acknowledge the disastrous effects of overfishing and take actions to stop the unsustainable fishing practices.

Charles Clover is Executive Director of the Blue Marine Foundation, an award-winning marine charity. A lifelong author and journalist, he was Environment Editor of the Daily Telegraph for 20 years and still writes for the Sunday Times in London. Before writing The End of the Line (2004), which spawned the charity, he co-authored a book with the Prince of Wales, Highgrove: Portrait of an Estate (1993).
