David Abel: “Entangled”

“ENTANGLED” is an award winning, feature-length film about how climate change has accelerated a collision between one of the world’s most endangered species, North America’s most valuable fishery, and a federal agency mandated to protect both.  The film, by the makers of Lobster War and Sacred Cod, won a Jackson Award, Best Feature film at the International Wildlife Film Festival, Best Conservation Film and the John de Graff Environmental Filmmaking Award. In 2022, it was nominated for a national Emmy award. David Abel is a Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter who covers environmental issues for the Boston Globe.  He is also a professor of the practice at Boston University. Abel, who began learning to make films as a Nieman fellow at Harvard University, plans to complete a new film in 2023, “In the Whale.” Jim Lichoulas from Mill 5 will offer us an introduction to documentary film making from a presenter’s point of view.
