April 21, 2017 at 7:00pm – A Sea Change (83 min, Barbara Ettinger, 2009) Please note this will be on the 3rd Friday of April for this month only.

It offers positive examples of new technologies and effective changes in human behavior that we all must choose before the oceans are lost. (excerpted from www.bullfrogfilms.com)

An unlikely team of activists is out to expose the two worlds endangering species across the globe. The first threat to the wild comes from the international trade of wildlife. Bogus markets are being created at the expense of creatures who have survived on this planet for millions of years. The other threat is all around us, hiding in plain sight. There’s a hidden world that … Written by OPS. From IMDB.
