Darwin’s Nightmare

A harrowing, hard-hitting documentary which shows the devastating effects of the “globalized” economy on the residents of a fishing village in Tanzania. The story starts four decades ago when a species of huge fish is introduced to Tanzania’s Lake Victoria. The fish are now harvested, chopped into filets and shipped to European and Japanese consumers while the Africans who catch and process them are left with rotting carcasses – and very little else. This film focuses on the fish for gun trade that has arisen and the impact it has had on life in the area.
