Atlantic is the second documentary film from the makers of the award winning documentary The Pipe (2010). The film charts the politics of resource management of the North Atlantic; from strong State control in Norway, mixed fortunes in Newfoundland, to a more liberal, privatised system in Ireland. Atlantic, through the experience of these coastal neighbours, poses the question: who will benefit from the exploitation of these resources, and what the consequences will be for communities and the environment? Atlantic's aim is to empower local communities and individuals so that they can better contribute to this vital debate. We want people to engage in live and uncensored discussions between people on all sides of the Atlantic.
