The MV Film Society is collaborating with the MV OysterFest to bring to you a special night of bivalve fun and discussion. 

On March 11, 2011, a huge tsunami generated by the Great East Japan Earthquake struck Japan’s northeastern coast, including Kesennuma in Miyagi Prefecture. All life vanished from the sea. In despair, an oyster farmer named Shigeatsu Hatakeyama decided to rebuild his life. Though a fisherman, he also spent decades reforesting the surrounding hills and was sure the sea would recover. This program starts following Hatakeyama just after the disaster, showing how the sea and the forest are cleansed through mutual interaction. Featuring his moving monologue, it celebrates the miracle of resurrected life in a seaside village.

*PLUS A LOCAL SHORT FILM ABOUT COTTAGE CITY OYSTERS – OYSTERMEN DAN & GREG MARTINO WILL BE IN ATTENDANCE

The MVOF is a celebration of all the things we love—Martha’s Vineyard, local food, festive drink, great music, and memorable connections. Thank you for joining the journey.
