Dock-u-mentary: Mami Wata

New Bedford Fishing Heritage Center’s free Dock-u-mentary series, hosted in partnership with New Bedford Whaling National Historical Park, has returned! On November 17 at 7:00pm, we will be teaming up with the New Bedford Art Museum to screen the Nigerian film Mami Wata, a critically-lauded film that was featured at the Sundance Film Festival and explores the relationship between people and water. Mami Wata is a special tie-in with our newest exhibit, Sea Monsters: Real and Imagined. Total Runtime: 1 hour 47 mins.

Content warning: this film includes depictions of violence, adult language, sexuality, and some nudity. Viewer discretion is advised.

Dock-u-mentaries are FREE and are hosted in the New Bedford Whaling National Historical Park auditorium at 33 William Street in Downtown New Bedford. Doors open at 6:30pm.

Register here (please select one free ticket per family or couple):
