[ARCHIVED] Rhode Island Trap Fishermen Documentary Film Showing

Join us at Peace Dale Library, 1057 Kingstown Rd., Peace Dale, on Saturday, March 11, 2 PM, for a showing of "In History's Wake: The Trap Fishermen of Rhode Island". Filmmaker Markham Starr’s work focuses on vanishing ways of life and work in the Rhode Island fishing community. The film follows the Maria Mendonsa, Amelia Bucolo, and North Star, three vessels out of Point Judith and Sakonnet that still practice traditional trap fishing, a method now largely replaced by trawler techniques. For more information or to reserve a seat, contact or 789-1555 ext. 110.
