The Tides of Time – The people of “Down East” in Eastern Carteret County, North Carolina have worked the sounds and ocean for nearly three centuries and developed a unique rapport with an unpredictable environment, but the sustained seclusion that protected their heritage is fast eroding. The traditional character of the community is challenged on all sides by development, pollution and globalization, with the family fisheries and their heritage hanging in the balance. Culled from hundreds of hours of interview and documentary footage, Core.Sounders paints a vivid portrait of life on the water and conveys the profound sense of belonging that defines life on the edge of the sea.
“CORE.SOUNDERS” documents the people, culture and heritage of the Core Sound watermen.
