A riveting documentary about the fight to save the world’s smallest whale from extinction

The vaquita porpoise is not only the world’s smallest species of whale, it is also on the brink of extinction. In his new film, Richard Ladkani documents the fight to save the vaquita while at the same time investigating the root of the problem – namely the Mexican cartels and Chinese smugglers who make big money off the illegal fishing of the totoaba fish, whose swimming bladder is a highly sought-after natural remedy. SEA OF SHADOWS is an exciting and engaging documentary in the vein of THE COVE (BIFF 2009).
