    • Synopsis
    • Narrated by Emmy Awardwinning
      actor Brendan Gleeson, Atlantic follows the fortunes of
      three small fishing communities in
      Ireland, Norway and Newfoundland as
      they struggle to
      maintain their way of life in the face of mounting economic and ecological challenges.
      As the oil majors drive deeper into their fragile seas, and the world’s largest fishing
      companies push fish stocks to the brink, coastal communities and the resources they rely on
      are fast approaching a point of no return.
      Filmed in some of the most remote and breathtaking locations in the North Atlantic, and at
      close quarters with some of the sea’s most captivating characters, Atlantic brings to the fore
      three very intimate stories from the global resource debate. It explores how modern day
      communities must learn from the past, in order to secure a brighter future.
      Atlantic has just debuted at the Dublin International Film Festival 2016, winning Best Irish
      Documentary .
