7:30 – “The Spalding Oyster: Johnny Hoy and the Great Pond” short film, directed by Conor Hagen

Produced by Beetlebung Farm

This short documentary is an introspective glimpse into one of Martha’s Vineyard’s most important natural features, the Tisbury Great Pond, and one of the many eccentric fishermen who interact with it daily, Johnny Hoy. Local islanders may know Mr. Hoy for his blues music, but in this serene and intimate short, Johnny Hoy shows us his quieter side, as a hard-working and diligent oyster fisherman.

8:00 – “Leviathan” a film by Véréna Paravel & Lucien Castaing-Taylor

From the directors of Sweetgrass and Foreign Parts, LEVIATHAN is a thrilling, immersive documentary that takes you deep inside the dangerous world of commercial fishing. Set aboard a hulking fishing vessel as it navigates the treacherous waves off the New England coast—the very waters that once inspired Moby Dick—the film captures the harsh, unforgiving world of the fishermen in starkly haunting, yet beautiful detail. Employing an arsenal of cameras that pass freely from film crew to ship crew, and swoop from below sea level to astonishing bird’s-eye views, LEVIATHAN is unlike anything you have ever seen; a purely visceral, cinematic experience.
