Premiere of the Documentary “Until the End of the World”

23 February 24

On Friday 23 February at 8:30 pm at Katheti’s venue we invite you all to the Greek premiere of the documentary “Until the End of the World” by independent journalist Francesco De Augustinis! The one-hour documentary features a worldwide journalistic investigation into industrial fish farming and includes Poros’ fight as an example of the battle of small local communities against the detrimental plans of large-scale aquaculture companies.

Director’s note

“The idea of ​​the documentary is to tell and connect the experience of different communities that independently, in different parts of the world, are fighting against the expansion of fish farming. From Italy, to Greece, from Spain to Senegal, up to the once pristine waters of Chilean Patagonia, the film exposes the conflicts for the resources that this industry produces, making huge profits while promoting itself as a sustainability champion.”

It is profoundly moving to witness our efforts and fellow citizens echoed through diverse mediums. We would like to thank Francesco De Augustinis for including the island’s fight against POAY in this documentary. United, we can stand against fish farms and protect our oceans for future generations! We look forward to seeing you all on February 23rd!

The event is free and will be followed by drinks and an open discussion with the documentary’s director Francesco De Augustinis. The film will have Greek subtitles.

At Katheti, we’re dedicated to preserving the natural beauty and biodiversity of our beloved island. As Poros is threatened by the POAY’s plans, Katheti supports our community’s joint effort thorough research and educational efforts regarding the negative impact of industrial fish farming. On World Ocean’s Day (8 June) 2023,  we screened Francesco De Augustinis’ documentary “Saving Poros”, as part of our multi-faceted communication campaign. We also organized the screening of two of LOWCo’s documentaries on Poros and Methana to inform residents about POAY’s plans. On our YouTube channel, you can watch a series of international documentaries about fish farming to which we have added Greek subtitles and on Katheti’s website you can find all “Fish Farming Information” related to Greece and similar communities worldwide.
