“My Village, My Lobster” reveals perilous lobster fishing industry in Nicaragua; Colorado premiere


I am proud to host the Boulder, Colorado premiere of the documentary film “MY VILLAGE, MY LOBSTER”, the powerful and shocking story of the indigenous Miskito lobster divers along Nicaragua’s Atlantic Coast who risk their lives diving for the region’s most lucrative resource – the Caribbean spiny lobster. Catch the film’s showing at the 7th Annual Colorado Environmental Film Festival next weekend in Golden, or come to the Boulder event on Monday, February 25, 2013, at the Nomad Theater (1410 Quince Ave. Boulder, CO 80304), at 7 p.m. Let us know you’re coming on this Facebook Event Page.

“My Village, My Lobster” was filmed over four years and produced by my good friends, independent filmmakers Brad Allgood and Josh Wolff. The event will also feature local environmental activist, Xiuhtezcatl Martinez, 12, subject of my latest Denver Post column. His 8-minute film, “TRUST: Colorado” is also featured in Colorado Environmental Film Festival.
