PEFF: “Ghost Fleet,” with Producer Jon Bowermaster
The film “Ghost Fleet” will be screened at 7 p.m. Saturday, April 13, in the Computer Science Building, Room 104. A Q&A with producer Jon Bowermaster will follow the film. This event is part of the April 8-14 Princeton Environmental Film Festival co-sponsored by the Princeton Environmental Institute (PEI).
Summary: “Ghost Fleet” follows a small group of activists who risk their lives on remote Indonesian islands to find justice and freedom for the enslaved fishermen who feed the world’s insatiable appetite for seafood. Bangkok-based Patima Tungpuchayakul, a Thai abolitionist, has committed her life to helping these “lost” men return home. Facing illness, death threats, corruption and complacency, Patima’s fearless determination for justice inspires her nation and the world.
