LOBSTER WAR is an award-winning feature film about a climate-fueled
conflict between the United States and Canada over waters that both
countries have claimed since the end of the Revolutionary War. The disputed
277 square miles of sea, known as the Gray Zone, were traditionally fished
by US lobstermen. But as the Gulf of Maine has warmed faster than nearly
any other body of water on the planet, the area’s previously modest lobster
population has surged. As a result, Canada has begun to assert its
sovereignty, fighting with the U.S. to claim the bounty.
