SEA OF SHADOWS

Austria | 2019 | Richard Ladkani, Sean Bogle, Matthew Podolsky

SEA OF SHADOWS film still

Winner of the Audience Award in the World Cinema/Documentary competition at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, this suspenseful documentary about the heroic efforts to save the vaquita porpoise from extinction plays like a preposterously plotted and scripted eco-thriller. Found mostly in the Gulf of California, the vaquita is the world’s smallest whale and most endangered sea mammal. (There may be fewer than 15 left.) Many have died as collateral damage in the nets of fishermen trying to catch the totoaba fish, whose swim bladders fetch thousands of dollars in China. “A stirring adventure—inspiring and heartbreaking.” –Hollywood Reporter. Cleveland premiere. DCP. 104 min.
