Subject: First Friday Films presents SharkWater on Aug. 6th

Hello All,

We are just over a week away from our August First Friday Films event where we will be screening the award winning film "SharkWater". The event will naturally be on the first Friday of the month (August 6th), at 7:00pm at the American Memorial Park Visitors center.

The winner of 31 international awards, Sharkwater is a film documenting the exploitation and corruption surrounding the world’s shark populations and the effect we are having on our ocean ecosystems by removing these important predators. Director Rob Stewart explores the culture of fear that has contributed to the mismanagement of these creatures as well as the multi-billion dollar industry that has led many shark species to the brink of extinction. Stewart's journey to explore the last safe havens left for sharks inadvertently pits him against black-market industry leaders and leads him on an adventure that threatens not only the life of many of these species but also his own.

Please join us for this wonderful documentary as well as a discussion about CNMI shark populations led by officials from the Division of Fish and Wildlife (DFW) directly following the film. For more information about the film and to see the official trailer please visit

We hope to see you next Friday!
