One Ocean Film Tour Comes To Southampton Arts Center

One Ocean Film Tour will take place on the grounds of the Southampton Arts Center on Sunday, July 11, at 7:30 PM. Presented by Hydro Flask, this world-class series of ocean-loving films focuses on adventure, the aquatic environment, and inspirational stories.

Sponsored by Elyn and Jeff Kronemeyer, this year’s tour features eight short films focusing on ocean conservation, surfing, diving, exploration, and more. The One Ocean Film Tour is part of SAC’s weekend theme of celebrating the seas. These screenings strengthen the organization’s ongoing commitment to the environment.

“The sea is what draws us all to the East End, so we are thrilled to celebrate our oceans with an evening of short documentaries from the One Ocean Film Tour,” shared Elyn Kronemeyer, SAC trustee and event sponsor. “The vision of One Ocean is to increase awareness about ocean protection and conservation by sharing films made by people who have dedicated their lives to the ocean and all her glory. All screenings are official registered events with World Ocean Day. We encourage guests to come early and picnic on the lawn before the films, which begin at 8:15 PM. Our friends at Surfrider Foundation Eastern Long Island Chapter, Southampton Volunteer Ocean Rescue Squad, and STAR AquaCenter will be on hand to share information about their organizations.”

As part of a theme of celebrating our seas, SAC will also screen “Fish & Men” on Thursday, July 8, at 7 PM and “My Octopus Teacher” on Friday, July 9 at 8 PM. “Fish & Men” exposes the high cost of cheap fish in the modern seafood economy and the forces threatening local fishing communities and public health by revealing how our choices as consumers drive the global seafood trade. A pre-screening panel includes Dr. Jennifer Jacquet, David Barber, Valentine Thomas, Esq, Sean Barrett, and moderator Tela Loretta Troge, Esq.

“My Octopus Teacher” is a 2020 Netflix Original documentary film directed by Pippa Ehrlich and James Reed, which documents a year spent by filmmaker Craig Foster forging a relationship with a wild common octopus in a South African kelp forest. At the 93rd Academy Awards, it won the award for Best Documentary Feature.
