Join us for our inaugural presentation of our new film series
They Live in Guinea tells the story of a hard-working, self-sufficient, fiercely independent community of fishermen and women working the waters of Virginia’s Chesapeake Bay. Guinea Neck, a once isolated village, must now grapple with conservationists, government regulators, and the sports fishing industry in order to preserve its way of life. The documentary not only captures the colorful, dynamic character of the Guinea “watermen” and the rhythms of their work and speech, but also traces the complex changes thrust upon their traditional ways by a fast-food society that threatens their ability to live off the water.
Presentation & film discussion by producer, William & Mary professor Sharon Zuber
