Screening of documentary ‘MAERL’ at the NUIG tonight!

The Zoology Society at NUI Galway have organised a screening of the documentary ‘MAERL’ this evening, Wednesday 14th October at 7pm. The screening will take place in the Ryan Institute building and all are welcome!

The film was made by marine scientist and Galway Film Centre member Siddhi Joshi and looks at the maerl coral, a special type of coral found in certain areas including the Aran Islands and Carraroe. The film was shot last Summer 2014 around areas of County Galway.

A short version of the documentary has been screened at Beneath the Waves Film Festival and the hour long version had its world premiere in San Jose, Costa Rica at the International Rhodolith Workshop.

All are welcome to attend.
