A talk with Gosia Juszczak, director of "Stolen Fish," and Mustapha Manneh, activist from the Gambia

About the film:

The construction of a Chinese fish processing plant completely changes the situation for the residents of Gunjur, on the Gambian coast. Fish was once a staple of local cuisine and the economy. These days, the fish are caught commercially by giant trawlers and turned into meal on-site, which is then sent to China and Europe as feed for livestock. Meanwhile, unemployed Gambian fishermen are joining the ranks of migrants seeking a better life in Europe. By revealing the next dominoes to fall, the filmmaker gives voice to those who are the biggest losers in game of globalization.
