Wednesday, October 23rd at 8:15 in Rhinebeck
Upstate Films and SunCommon co-present this FREE documentary screening about the challenges ecologists and conservationists face in the lucrative salmon-hatchery industry.
The commercial seafood supply chain is complex and often produces unreliable information. To highlight the high stakes of this industry and help viewers understand how to responsibly source their seafood, Artifishal talks to leading scientists and fish-conservation groups. Positing that hatcheries and open-water fish farms are driving wild fish to extinction around the world, the film documents the high cost of our reliance on human-engineered solutions, explores our loss of faith in nature, and shows how communities and ecosystems are impacted as wild salmon slide toward extinction.
*Artifishal was produced by Patagonia, who, like SunCommon, is a certified B Corporation that aims to balance purpose with profit.
(USA / 2019 / Directed by Josh Murphy)

About Upstate Films
Upstate Films opened in May of 1972 as a single-screen non-profit cinema staffed by its three founders. We launched our program in 16mm showing an eclectic mix of classic Hollywood and foreign films reflecting a wide-ranging diversity of themes, styles, countries, eras. Soon Upstate began to find and foster an audience interested in supporting an alternative to mainstream cinema. Upstate came of age so to speak along with the “independent” film movement screening sought-after indie features and documentaries along with films that were rarely screened in this country, much less in a semi-rural area. Over the decades, Upstate has shown thousands of films and hosted hundreds of filmmakers and critics, on its way to becoming a critically-acclaimed destination itself. Read more of the story…
