WA Premiere Bluefin A Documentary Film about Bluefin

Fremantle Underwater Film Festival presents.... The W.A. PREMIERE of 'BLUEFIN' is a tale of epic stakes set in “the tuna capital of the world,” North Lake, Prince Edward Island, Canada. The film explores the baffling mystery of why the normally wary bluefin tuna no longer fear humans. Local fishermen swear tuna are so starving and abundant now that they will literally eat out of people’s hands like pets. But something is not right. One thing is certain: this sudden and incredible abundance of tuna off their shores flies in the face of scientific assessments claiming endangered stocks are down by 90 percent. With stunning cinematography, director John Hopkins documents this mystery and brings the issues into sharp focus. At the heart of this documentary lies a passionate concern by all about the fate of the giant bluefin tuna. For one show only, screening in North Fremantle on Wednesday 13 December, 2017 at the RAILWAY HOTEL (soon to be called the new PORT BEACH GARDEN BAR) in the exciting - OUTDOOR CINEMA (PBGB-OC) by the sea. This is also the last FUFF night for 2017 of the PBGB-OC (which will screen films outdoors every Wednesday this summer at the venue).  Our website here: www.fuff.com.au See the trailer here: https://vimeo.com/187992957 Sit back, relax and enjoy the shows!
