‘Atlantic’ is a new feature documentary from Risteard O’Domhnaill (The Pipe, 2010). Narrated by Emmy Award-winning actor Brendan Gleeson, the film follows the fortunes of three small fishing communities in Ireland, Norway and Newfoundland (Canada). When traditional fishing communities meet ocean resource mismanagement, big oil and overfishing, what does the future hold? As the oil majors drive deeper into their fragile seas, and the world’s largest fishing companies push fish stocks to the brink, coastal people and the species they rely on may be reaching a point of no return.

Atlantic was awarded Best Irish Documentary at the Dublin International Film Festival 2016, and was Official Selection at the Sydney Film Festival and the Environmental Film Festival in Washington DC.
