A wine reception will precede the 5:00 screening of Take Back the Harbor. The documentary will be followed by a Q and A with Pete Malinowski, Director of the Billion Oyster Project.
This is a joint venture of the FI Conservancy and FFIT (Friends of the Fishers Island Theater).
Emmy-award-winning filmmakers Kristi Jacobson & Roger Ross Williams have spent more than a year behind the scenes with Harbor School students. Now the world premiere of Take Back the Harbor, from Discovery and Motto Pictures, aired Tuesday, December 18 on Discovery [try Channel 278]!
Watch as these young stewards dive deep to restore oyster reefs to NY Harbor, a waterway that was once one of the world’s most dynamic ecosystems.
“We can all find inspiration and empowerment from this film: when we come together, regardless of age, neighborhood allegiances, or where we stand on the political spectrum, we can establish sustainable solutions that benefit everyone.” – Directors Kristi Jacobson and Roger Ross Williams
From the Discovery Channel Press Release, “As the students – go to Fishers Island, get their hands dirty, grow oysters, conduct diving expeditions and learn to operate boats – we see just how difficult it is to build a movement intent on saving New York’s Harbor.” READ PRESS RELEASE
