Hamptons Doc Fest Presentation with Filmmaker Tom Garber

Cosponsored by the Hamptons Doc Fest and the South Fork Natural History Museum

Salt of the Sea tells the story of a vanishing breed of independent commercial fishermen in New England. Filmed on several independently owned and operated boats in Long Island, Rhode Island, and Massachusetts over 18 months, the documentary shows what happens when a passion for fishing intersects with the power of politics. Contradictory governments’ regulations, corrupt enforcement, and a tough economy are contributing to the loss of a way of life that has existed for centuries. Running Time: 53 minutes.

Tom Garber, who lives in Hampton Bays, L.I., has produced ten documentaries that have aired on PBS and the Discovery Channel. His themes cover ordinary people in extraordinary circumstances. He graduated from the Film/Video Department of CalArts, where he mentored with Academy Award-winning filmmaker Terry Sanders. He has received several awards, including a NY Emmy, a Bronze Telly, Platinum and Silver REMI Awards, and a Gold Medal from the Charleston International Film Festival.
