Film – Darwin’s Nightmare

25 Feb

I enjoy a good documentary film and Darwin’s Nightmare, directed by Hubert Sauper, is IMMENSE.

It basically explores the dark side of the Nile Perch fishing industry turning up some rather unpalatable consequences for the local communities and internationally.

I don’t like film reviews so I’m not really going to do one. What I will say is that it is extremely haunting. It is pieced together in a very compelling way and, without being dramatic, is incredibly dramatic ( this is why I don’t do reviews).  If you can, watch it and then perhaps reflect on the unsavoury effects of world economics, which is what I have been doing!!

Maybe when you have watched it, you might also like to read this.
