We are delighted to be screening Rupert Murray’s first major documentary The End of the Line from 2009. It is based on investigative journalist Charles Clover’s book of the same name where he writes about the devastating effects on ocean ecosystems by modern fishing techniques and over-consumption. Rupert Murray spent two years documenting Clover, as he confronts politicians and celebrity restaurateurs, who seemed to have little regard for the damage created. This screening forms part of our 2017 artistic programme exploring food and the environment.

About the director
Rupert Murray is a film director based in London. Prior to making this film, he made documentaries for Channel Four’s Cutting Edge series and made several short films including Outsiders and This Was My War.

Prior to the screening, we will be showing 1938 short film Salmon Fishing on Skye made by SEFA (Scottish Educational Film Association), who formed in 1935 in order to promote the use of educational films and other visual aids in education. A prize winner at the Scottish Amateur Film Festival 1941, the film shows beautiful early colour footage of salmon fishermen at work.
