Cambridge, Massachusetts
As part of Eat Local Month, the Sustainable Business Network of Massachusetts, in partnership with MDAR, is presenting a screening of Lobster War at the Brattle Theater. The screening will be followed by a question and answer session with the director, David Abel from the Boston Globe.  Lobster War is an award-winning feature film about a climate-fueled conflict between the United States and Canada over waters that both countries have claimed since the end of the Revolutionary War. The disputed 277 square miles of sea, known as the Gray Zone, were traditionally fished by US lobstermen. But as the Gulf of Maine has warmed faster than nearly any other body of water on the planet, the area’s previously modest lobster population has surged. As a result, Canadians have begun to assert their sovereignty, warring with the Americans to claim the bounty.
