On Thursday, October 1 from 6:30 to 8:30 pm, the Maine Maritime Museum in Bath will screen two exciting documentary films juxtaposing the lives of lobstermen in the village of Corea in 1947 and the lobstering lifestyle in Stonington in 2009.

Contrasting the beauty of the Downeast Maine seacoast with the stark reality of earning a living there, Life by Lobster by Iain McCray Martin takes viewers inside the lives of five young lobster fishermen determined to pursue this proud traditional vocation against steadily mounting obstacles. Martin is a native of Deer Isle-Stonington, Maine and graduated from Emory University with a film degree in May of 2009. Life by Lobster was selected for inclusion in the "Best of 2009" collection at the Maine International Film Festival.

Lobstertown by Jean Oser profiles an entire village revolving its daily life around lobster. A remarkable film from French filmmaker Oser who was both an internationally known film editor as well as an Oscar-winning dramatic filmmaker.
