Until the end of the world + Poros Stands + live Q&A – Actone Cinema

20 April @ 2:00 pm4:30 pm BST

Until the end of the world is a journey across three continents, following a journalistic investigation into the fish farming industry.

From Italy to Greece, Spain to Senegal, to the once-pristine waters of Chilean Patagonia, Until the end of the world unmasks the colonial face of fish farming and exposes the conflicts over the resources this industry produces, making huge profits while promoting itself as a ‘sustainability champion’.

Salmon, trout, sea bream, sea bass, and then environment, food security, colonization, land and water grabbing. Aquaculture is the fastest growing food industry in the world, promising to be a sustainable solution to feed a growing global population that could reach 9.7 billion people in 2050.

The film, however, exposes a different reality: local communities in different regions are fighting against the expansion of fish farms, accused of polluting pristine waters, grabbing natural resources and even fostering hunger and food insecurity.

The film will be preceded by the short documentary Poros Stands (trailer) that documents how the citizens of the small island of Poros in Greece, decided to make a stand and say no to the government’s decision to expand the already substantial fish farms around Greece by 25 times. A live Q&A will follow.
