Sea of Shadows
Saturday 3rd August
Winner of the Audience Award, Sundance Film Festival 2019
The swim bladder of the totoaba fish is known as the “cocaine of the sea.” On the black market, controlled by Mexican cartels, it sells for more than gold. So intense is the plundering of the sea that it is endangering the existence of other species.
This fast-paced, superbly crafted eco-thriller takes us aboard the Sea Shepherd in a desperate battle to protect the beautiful and biodiverse Sea of Cortez. Scientists, conservationists, and the Mexican government race to end illegal fishing and prevent the extinction of the vaquita, the world’s smallest porpoise.
Using captivating imagery, fast-paced intrigue and authentic ticking clocks, Sea of Shadows captivates the viewer from scene one.
