Chesapeake Villages

As one of the important centers of the U.S. seafood industry, the Chesapeake Bay has for centuries supported watermen, businesses, and communities all along its shores. But catches of Chesapeake seafood are down, mostly due to poor water quality, and some bayside towns now face an uncertain future. Chesapeake Villages tells the stories of three such villages and their residents: Deal Island, Crisfield, and Hoopers Island.

The Island Theatre welcomes the film’s producers Vanina Harel, Shayna Muller, and Nick  Zachar  to tell us about their filming experience on this project. In addition, we look forward to hosting a small panel of local experts to tell us more about aqua culture and the current state of bay resources.

This film will be featured during Chesapeake Bay week on MPT and has also been featured as part of Chris Palmer’s 10th Annual Spring 2015 Film Series at American University.
