Oil companies drilling deep into the Arctic and commercial fishing fleets chasing dwindling stocks are decimating marine ecosystems and fishermen’s livelihoods in the coastal communities of Ireland, Norway and Newfoundland. The filmmaker of the award-winning 2010 documentary The Pipe presents clips from a film-in-progress using personal, intimate stories to illustrate how offshore drilling exacerbates the crisis of natural resources and the struggle of these fishing communities to maintain their way of life.


Directed by Risteard Ó Domhnaill. Produced by Risteard Ó Domhnaill and Marie-Therese Garvey.
