ABOUT THE FILM: When a young man is killed by a shark at a popular beach on Cape Cod, the local community of lifeguards, fishermen, surfers, scientists, and citizen activists are forced to confront dramatic changes to their environment and way of life. AFTER THE BITE is a thoughtful exploration of how the Cape’s coastal community is renegotiating its relationship with the marine environment to consider the larger question that has plagued the human race since the industrial revolution: how far can we push nature before it bites back? Award-winning filmmaker Ivy Meeropol crafts an immersive story with multiple viewpoints with a focus on local voices.
