Fast and furious, the wild bluefin tuna has always been an elusive quarry for filmmakers. Santa Barbara-based marine biologist and wildlife filmmaker Rick Rosenthal is one of the few who have filmed bluefin in the wild. And, not too soon, as the bluefin are being fished to dangerously low levels.

You are invited:

On July 26, 2012, at 7:00 p.m., the Carsey-Wolf Center will screen the new documentary HOT TUNA at UC Santa Barbara’s new state-of-the-art Pollock Theater.  Rick Rosenthal will be on hand to share new behind-the-scenes footage and answer audience questions. The event concludes with a reception. Admission is free. More information and reservations are available at: www.carseywolf.ucsb.edu/Pollock.
