Film Night Double Feature! 'Mystery of the Gnaraloo Sea Turtles' and 'Melting Stars'

Film 1: Melting Stars, 2017 Canada
MELTING STARS unravels the mystery behind one of the most catastrophic species die offs in recorded history. In 2013 scuba divers off the West coast of British Columbia discovered that the star fish were dying in the millions and suffering horrific deaths. They were disintegrating into goo on the ocean floor and the environmental balance of the marine ecosystem was being changed. Soon the immensity of this epidemic came to light and what researchers had dubbed the Sea Star Wasting Syndrome was now affecting several star fish species all along the Pacific Coast from Alaska to Mexico. The virus was also discovered in preserved museum samples from the 1940’s. So what has changed? MELTING STARS follows the clues on this marine mystery. Watch the trailer HERE.  

Film 2: Mystery of the Gnaraloo Sea Turtles, 2017 Australia
This stunning documentary features never-before-seen underwater footage as we track the migration of Gnaraloo Loggerhead turtles. During 2015/16, in remote Western Australia, scientists attached satellite trackers on the backs of ten females for the first time at Gnaraloo to discover where they go after nesting at Gnaraloo. The results - and the amazing cinematography - will astound you! Dive in and learn about life after the nesting beaches. Witness incredible shots and fascinating discoveries. Watch the trailer HERE.  

Doors and concession stand opens at 6pm. Screening starts at 6:30pm. Get your tickets HERE!
