My Village, My Lobster tells the harrowing story of an industry and a community in crisis.
It is not a movie about a Newfoundland or Maine lobster town.
The documentary highlights indigenous Miskito lobster divers along Nicaragua's Atlantic Coast. The film gives a voice to those who risk their lives diving for the region's most lucrative resource, the Caribbean spiny lobster -- referred to locally as red gold.
The film shows consumers the human cost associated with the simple act of ordering a lobster at their favorite seafood restaurant.
Now, perhaps it might be time for a documentary, My Outport, My Fishery that looks at the crisis in the seafood industry, unilateral federal government changes to E.I. regulations, resource allocation and corporate ownership!
