Film of the Stuggle for a NTZ

Jan 30,2007 SACN

The Cube Cinema (central Bristol off Jamaica Street - ) on 20th February at 8pm. http://www.cubecinema.com

On an island off the West Coast of Scotland a group of locals have been trying to protect an area of the sea from the destructive methods used by the  powerful Scottish fishing industry.

This is their story.

A story of local consensus frustrated by a government too used to listening to industrial lobbyists.

A story of great policy but no action.

It was beautifully filmed by Blue Planet and Planet Earth Emmy Award winning cameraman Douglas Anderson (famous for dismissing sharks as 'little dogs') and contains rare and lovely UK marine footage as well as revealing interviews with the parties involved.

It is a must see for anyone interested in environmental and social campaigning - or the dangers of too many meetings.

It will include an introduction from the film makers.

For more information on the project see http://www.arrancoast.co.uk

Run time 54 minutes

Ticket price - £4 / £3 members
