Film Screening: Artifishal
"The road to extinction is paved with good intentions"
In the third event of its kind, we’re hosting a free screening of the latest Patagonia film – Artifshal - in our Coal Drops Yard store on the 5th of September.
We’ll have some serious seating from the good folks at Helinox, and plenty of beer courtesy of the equally good folks at Stone Brewing. Tickets are available below and via the EventBrite, but for a little more insight into what the film is all about, read on:
Artifishal is a film about people, rivers, and the fight for the future of wild fish and the environment that supports them. It explores wild salmon’s slide toward extinction, threats posed by fish hatcheries and fish farms, and our continued loss of faith in nature.
Open net fish farms threaten the survival of wild fish including Atlantic salmon, sea trout and Arctic char but governments are not doing enough to address the problems. Instead the industry is set to expand exponentially in the pristine fjords of Iceland and continues to grow at alarming rates around Norway, Scotland and Ireland.
Doors @7:45pm and screening @8pm. A suggested donation on the door will go to the North Atlantic Salmon Fund. We’re really looking forward to it, and hope to catch you there.
**Update 01/09/2019: spaces for the screening are now sold out.**
But, you can still get involved, Patagonia have an open petition here to hasten regulations on fish farming and protect wild fish and marine habitats in Europe.
On the 5th September on the same day as our screening, Patagonia will be delivering this petition to Scottish Parliament, make your voice heard.
