Filming the Sea: a Talk by Documentary Filmmaker David ConoverAs a documentary filmmaker, David Conover has spent twenty-five years on some of the most extreme coasts on earth, sharing his eclectic explorations and innovations with a camera.

Weaving clips and personal stories, Conover's talk is an inter-disciplinary visit to that dynamic zone between land and sea; from Newfoundland to Madagascar, Svalbard to the Galapagos, analog past to the digital future.

Encounters include an around-the-world voyage with geneticist Craig Venter, an excavation of the pirate Captain Kidd's ship, and a paddle with the extinct Great Auk.

Conover is Bowdoin's 2014-15 Coastal Studies scholar and will be teaching courses in the fall and spring semesters of next year.
