• Double feature for Dock-U-Mentaries (South Coast Today)

    From: South Coast Today

    The Dock-U-Mentaries Film Series continues this month with two programs.

    On Sunday at 2 p.m., the Working Waterfront Festival teams up with WCAI (the Cape and Islands NPR station) to present “Ocean Frontiers II: A New England Story for Sustaining the Sea.” On Jan. 17, a screening of “Red Gold” will be offered at 7 p.m.

    “Ocean Frontiers II” uses coastal Rhode Island as a case study to consider the marine spatial planning process involved in negotiating varied use of the marine environment. Maritime historian Mary Malloy will lead a discussion following the film.

    Filmmakers Ben Knight and Travis Rummel spent 70 days in Bristol Bay documenting the growing unrest among native, commercial and sport fishermen who oppose the construction of Pebble Mine, an open pit copper mine, which would be built at the headwaters of the Kvichak and the Nushagak Rivers in Bristol Bay, Alaska.

    Dock-U-Mentaries is a co-production of New Bedford Whaling National Historical Park and the Working Waterfront Festival. The Corson Maritime Learning Center is at 33 William St., New Bedford.

    All programs are open to the public and presented free.
