Janet Solomon – a Durban artist and filmmaker – will screen her movie, Becoming Visible, about the impact of noise exposure from marine surveys on sea species, at the KZNSA Gallery on March 15.

Becoming Visible investigates the risks posed by unilateral and indiscriminate traumatising noise exposure from marine seismic surveys to many marine species. The 33-minute film also looks at the vulnerability of fishery-based livelihoods to these impacts,” explains Solomon.

The KZN public premiere of Becoming Visible will take place at the KZNSA Gallery at 19h00 on March 15. The movie is an arthouse environmental documentary using a three-screen display. After the screening, there will be a facilitated public Q&A featuring filmmaker, Janet Solomon in conversation with Senior Ezemvelo KZN Wildlife marine ecologist, Dr Jennifer Olbers.

The Gallery Cafe will stay open to serve early dinners and the bar will stay open until after the Q&A. Entrance is free and all are welcome.

The KZNSA Gallery is situated at 166 Bulwer Road, Glenwood, in Durban. More information on 031 277 1705, fax 031 201 8051 or cell 082 220 0368 or visit
