Event Details

Fighting for the fish!

This movie has strong ties to Alpena and northeast Michigan. It will hit home for many.

About the film:

“Relentless” is a captivating mystery that engages the audience in a battle for the survival of the largest freshwater ecosystem on Earth, the Great Lakes. This fascinating true story, narrated by Oscar-winning actor J.K. Simmons, follows remarkable people tackling the mystery of why the most prized fish nearly vanished. The crash destroyed jobs and businesses, and devastated towns, tribal communities, and First Nations across the region.

Overfishing, dam building and industrial dumping had already decimated fish populations in parts of the Great Lakes, but when fish began disappearing far from industrial cities, scientists discovered what proved to be the most destructive marine species to ever invade the Great Lakes. Their tenacious search for a way to control it continues to influence the Great Lakes region’s economic fortunes and sounds a warning about the future of natural resources and the prosperity of millions around the world today.

Play trailer:

“Relentless” was part of our Thunder Bay International Film Festival in 2024. It was played in Rogers City to a packed theater and received well. “A lot of people were attached to the story,” filmmaker Lindsey Haskins said.

We invite you to join us for its first ALPENA showing.

This is a free event. The doors open at 6:30pm and the film will start at 7pm and has a 92 minute run time.
