WORLD AT WAR
Dir. Robert Nixon | Documentary | U.S.A. | 1 hr. 22 min.
Discussion to follow with director Robert Nixon and film subjects Max Kennedy, Jack Nixon, and Buddy Vanderhoop
Seeing the disappearance of fish he loves to catch, 15-year-old Jack Nixon enlists marine conservationist Dr. Sylvia Earle in a years-long quest to save our dying oceans. Photographer Brian Skerry, captain Max Kennedy, and a band of teenage aquanauts bolster expeditions to the high seas of industrial fishing fleets, and to the melting polar ice of the Chukchi Sea. Astronaut Bill Anders and activist Bill McKibben provide lessons on how humanity met past challenges. Daunted by the present ones, the teenagers find hope in nature’s ability to heal.
