SEA OF SHADOWS is a riveting eco-thriller documentary that follows a team of dedicated scientists, high-tech conservationists, investigative journalists and courageous undercover agents as well as the Mexican Navy as they put their lives on the line to save the last remaining vaquitas, the world’s smallest cetacean – an accidental casualty of the illegal capturing of the totoaba and their swim bladders – and bring the vicious international crime syndicate to justice.
Winner of the 2019 Sundance audience award, the film was executive produced by Leonardo Dicaprio, and created by the team who created The Ivory Games.
