Philly on fire in 1985 in Let The Fire Burn.

Our popular  Weekend Film Series returns on Sunday, January 19 with two powerful documentaries, Let The Fire Burn and The Last Ocean.

Rated by many as one of the top documentaries of 2013, the gripping Let the Fire Burn brings to life one of the most tumultuous and largely forgotten clashes between the American government and its citizens when a long-simmering feud between the city of Philadelphia and the controversial urban group MOVE came to a deadly climax in 1985.

The Last Ocean documents the campaign to protect the pristine Ross Sea in Antarctica from the effects over overfishing for lucrative Chilean sea bass. Marine experts have rallied together to take on commercial fishers and governments in a race to protect Earth’s last untouched ocean from our insatiable appetite for fish.

The Weekend Film Series, sponsored by Gosling’s, screens at the Tradewinds Auditorium at the Bermuda Underwater Exploration Institute. Tickets available now from the Oceans Gift Shop at the BUEI or by calling 294-0204.
