The award-winning film Sonic SEA will be free for the public to view on Wednesday, August 10 at 7:00 p.m., followed by a panel discussion. Fortunate Blessings Foundation is hosting the event at the Litchfield Community Center.
Sonic Sea is a 60-minute documentary about the impact of industrial and military ocean noise on whales and other marine life. It tells the story of a former US Navy officer who solved a tragic mystery and changed forever the way we understand our impact on the ocean. The film is narrated by Rachel McAdams and features Sting, in addition to the renowned ocean experts Dr. Sylvia Earle, Dr. Paul Spong, Dr. Christopher Clark and Jean-Michel Cousteau. Sonic Sea was produced by the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) and Imaginary Forces in association with the International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW) and Diamond Docs.

We will begin with the film at 7:00 PM followed by a short panel discussion on how we can take steps to protect the ocean and marine life.
