St. John Film Society Event

April 4 @ 7:30 pm

St. John Film Society (SJFS) will screen “FREIGHTENED; The Real Price of Shipping.”  The suggested donation is $5, or become a 2017 member of SJFS ($40 individual/ $60 couple). “FREIGHTENED” is a 90-minute documentary by Denis Delestrac that reveals an audacious investigation of the mechanics and perils of cargo shipping, which is an all-but-invisible industry that relentlessly supplies seven billion humans and holds the key to the world’s economy and its environment — the very model of civilization.  The film answers questions such as: Who pulls the strings in this multi-billion-dollar business?  To what extent does the industry control our policy makers? How does it affect the environment above and below the water-line? And what’s life like for modern seafarers?
