Sacred Cod is a feature-length documentary that captures the collapse of the historic cod population in New England, delving into the role of overfishing, the impact of climate change, and the measures that scientists and policymakers are taking to restore the region’s iconic species. This character-driven film highlights the fight of one community to adapt to a changing way of life, while examining how depleted cod populations elsewhere are rebounding.
