The Pulitzer Center-supported documentary Entangled will be shown at The Music Hall in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, on May 1 at 7:00pm EDT. A discussion with director David Abel will follow.

Entangled, part of a larger Connected Coastlines reporting project, was created by Pulitzer Center grantees Abel and Andy Laub. Their award-winning film chronicles the controversy around efforts to save the North Atlantic right whales from extinction. 

Fewer than 400 remain, making the whales among the planet's most endangered species. Scientists say the main threat to their survival lurks under the water: hundreds of thousands of lobster lines, standard gear for North America's most valuable fishery. Under pressure from lawsuits by environmental advocates, the federal government is considering controversial new regulations that pit the region's politically powerful lobstermen against scientists and environmental advocates trying to save the whales.

Tickets to the screening and discussion can be purchased here. This screening is an in-person event.

Entangled is available for rent on Vimeo.
