Atlantic

Last night I went to the IFI (Irish Film Institute) to view the documentary film ‘Atlantic’.

Beautifully filmed in Ireland, Norway and Newfoundland, Atlantic follows the stories of three fishing communities, that share an ocean, its resources and all the complexities that goes with that.

Brendan Gleeson does a fantastic job of narrating this film and spoke very passionately on the subjects in question, in the Q&A that followed the film.

Atlantic was crowdfunded and took four years to make. I would very much recommend this film, if you wish to learn about a part of our community that frequently gets overlooked.
