At three different corners of the Atlantic, fishing communities in Ireland, Norway, and Newfoundland ­share social, economic and environmental problems stemming from human interactions with the ocean’s ecosystems. But while the Canadian and Norwegian governments work to safeguard their oil, gas, and fish, Ireland opts to sell its ocean resources to foreign interests, to the detriment of its working class. Featuring voiceover by renowned actor Brendan Gleeson, Risteard Ó Domhnaill’s Atlantic tackles harsh realities with uncommon grace and perspective.

Directed by Risteard Ó Domhnail, edited by Nigel O’Regan and produced by Marie-Therese Garvey.
