Join us for a special screening of Ocean Frontiers II at Monmouth University in New Jersey, followed by a panel discussion and audience Q & A. In a region steeped in old maritime tradition, the film tells the story of a modern wave of big ships, energy industries and a changing climate, and how people are coming together to plan for a healthy ocean off their coast.
