Focusing on fish and oil — the two biggest resources in the North Atlantic — ATLANTIC follows the fortunes of three small fishing communities as they struggle to maintain their way of life in the face of mounting economic and ecological challenges. Narrated by Emmy®-winning actor Brendan Gleeson, and shot across Ireland, Norway and Newfoundland, Canada, this eye-opening portrait of three coastal communities charts the politics of resource management across the North Atlantic; from strong state control in Norway and mixed fortunes in Newfoundland to a more liberal, privatized system in Ireland. Award-winning documentarian Risteard O'Domhnaill (THE PIPE) uses intimate personal stories to explore pressing macro-issues with global reach. Best Irish Documentary, 2016 Dublin Film Festival.
