showtimes and tickets

THE END OF THE LINE, the first major feature documentary film revealing the impact of overfishing on our oceans. In the film we see firsthand the effects of our global love affair with fish as food. It examines the imminent extinction of bluefin tuna, brought on by increasing western demand for sushi; the impact on marine life resulting in huge overpopulation of jellyfish; and the profound implications of a future world with no fish that would bring certain mass starvation.

Filmed over two years, THE END OF THE LINE follows the investigative reporter Charles Clover as he confronts politicians and celebrity restaurateurs, who exhibit little regard for the damage they are doing to the oceans.One of his allies is the former tuna farmer turned whistleblower Roberto Mielgo – on the trail of those destroying the world's magnificent bluefin tuna population.

Filmed across the world – from the Straits of Gibraltar to the coasts of Senegal and Alaska to the Tokyo fish market – featuring top scientists, indigenous fishermen and fisheries enforcement officials, THE END OF THE LINE is a wake-up call to the world.

OFFICIAL SELECTION - Sundance Film Festival

" This reminder of the fragility of the environment and the consequences of human greed should hook audiences."
Justin Chang, Variety

Why is this movie not in more cinemas? I'm in NYC. Better would be to put it on HULU, snagfilms, etc. and set free worldwide, and have a massive viral campaign to promote it. Too many good documentaries are produced but no one (too few) can really see them as they are not available everywhere. Filmmakers please rethink your distribution model, if you want to make a "real" impact.

I rated 5 stars without even seeing it, just because of the subject matter.

I admire the people who concieved this film and although I have not yet seen it, I feel that the people of the planet MUST see this and come to the realization that we are using up all the assets of the planet for people who could eat other things and allow the fish to become more proliffic again - then they can formulate a plan to use but not deplete the resources of the planet. I agree with Marc that more people MUST SEE THIS FILM. Find a way to put it on the internet so everyone can view it and react in a positive manner to help.

Should be shown in public libraries. Show it at universities - So the next generation will think about what's happening - FISHING IS HUNTING IN THE OCEAN!!! We can all begin to think of the history of the food we consume - But only a few have gotten the message - Just about everyone else walks like a zombie to the local fast food joint and consumes what's advertised. Wake Up!!! Time to Stand up!!! Dead Oceans = Dead Planet!!!

I've seen documentaries where fishing boats go out at night and scrap the bottom of the ocean for sea food. It was very disturbing to me to know that this was going on. A lot of the food caught up in these scoops are sea creatures that aren't even used and are tossed back dead. This isn't just a couple of boats here and there, this is hundreds of boats! I think every politician and anyone that cares about life and the planet should go see this film. There is also a new film out called "Food" about where our food comes from which includes factory farming. I hope that it gets the same publicity as this one.

Great faux salmon at Red Bamboo, NYC -- jsut a couple of blocks away... No need, taste-wise or any other wise, to eat fish with this dish available.

精准医疗要做到个性、高效及预防的关键在于筛查和诊断,因此基因测序等检测诊断技术的发展是关键。成本的下降让基因测序商业化市场的打开成为可能,基因测序技术的成熟和商用经过了多年的发展,1980 年自动测序仪出现,2001 年完成了人类基因组框架图标志着这一技术的成熟,2007 年二代基因测序技术大幅降低测序成本,使得这一技术应用出现可能,以走在前列的Illumina 公司为例,该公司自2007 年起把当时每个基因组的测序成本费用从1000万美元降到了当下的1000 美元, 根据Illumina 公司数据,全球NGS(二代基因测序)的应用市场规模预计为200 亿美元,药品研发和临床应用是增速最快的领域,增速超过15%,肿瘤诊断和个性化用药是最有应用前景的领域,市场规模120亿美元。乐土投资与Illumina以及新一代的基因检测公司Genalyte, Centrillion都有着合作关系。
