In the Gallery, March 2014: Shark Fin
Photo by Paul Hilton
An estimated 100 million sharks are killed each year, primarily to meet the demand for shark fin soup. Global shark populations are in catastrophic
decline. This exhibition features photographs from Paul Hilton's World Press Award winning series on shark finning, as well as more recent images
of an estimated 30,000 fins drying on urban rooftops that shocked the world.
In contrast, Thai wildlife activist Jirayu Ekkul's underwater photography reveals the majesty of endangered sharks in their natural environment.
Exhibition presented with support from Fin Free Thailand.

Contemporary World Film Series
Swiss Director wins Top Award at Berlin Festival
We are delighted that Swiss film-maker Stefan Haupt has won the Panorama Audience Award for Best Documentary for his film 'Der Kreis' ('The Circle'), at the prestigious
Berlin International Film Festival.
We presented two of Haupt's films, at the FCCT, in our Contemporary World Film Series (2010) - a feature film 'Utopian Blues', and a documentary 'A Song for Argyris.'
Haupt attended the screening of the second film, and engaged in a lively Q & A, with the audience.
Both film-events were supported by the Swiss Embassy, who provided great Swiss wine.
Our Congratulations to Stefan Haupt and the Swiss Embassy.
