Tuesday, September 10, 2019 - 6:00pm
On Tuesday, September 10 at 6pm, Middlebury Institute of International Studies hosts a screening of the anti-poaching documentary Chasing the Thunder followed by a panel discussion with the filmmakers at Irvine Auditorium in the McCone Building on the campus of MIIS. Thius event is free, but advance registration is requested.
Chasing the Thunder is a high-seas, eco thriller documentary about the vessels of the conservation group Sea Shepherd and their epic 110-day, 10,000-mile chase of the “Thunder,” considered the world’s most notorious poaching vessel. Across two seas and three oceans, the marine activists hunted the fugitive fishing ship through massive ice floes, storms-tossed seas, a near collision, and violent clashes until the Thunder dramatically sank, burying the evidence of its crimes on the bottom of the South Atlantic.
