Saturday, June 30, 7pm:
The Dark Hobby – All the Pretty Fishes and the Price Paid to Tank Them.

Presented By: Paradise Filmworks and The Snorkel Bob Foundation (Sneak Preview) This film is a work-in-progress reef documentary on the three hubs of aquarium extraction: Indonesia, the Philippines and mostly Hawaii. Controversy continues with aquarium collectors still working Hawaii reefs in violation of a Hawaii Supreme Court ruling. Aquarium plunder and consequence is documented, as aquarium collectors blame reef decimation on global warming and pollution. The campaign continues with a technical ban on West Hawaii aquarium collecting but no enforcement. Reef stewardship in The Reef State is in the balance. The Dark Hobby presents the pros and cons from both sides of the argument, commercial vs. conservation, 75 minutes. Dragon Walk, The Movie, On Reef Recovery & Political Will also filmed on location in the Philippines, Indonesia and Hawaii, depicts reef life in optimal conditions, where no commercial extraction occurs, 30 minute sample. WATCH THE MOVIE TRAILER.  7 pm at the Maui Arts & Cultural Center, McCoy Theater, One Cameron Way, Kahului. Tickets (808) 242-7469 or visit TICKETS.
