HOT TUNA’s second cameraman Eric Savetsky of Nantucket, [Executive Director of the Nantucket Land Bank] and pilot/aerial photographer Wayne Davis will speak and answer questions after the film.
Hot Tuna, a film by marine biologist/filmmaker Rick Rosenthal, plumbing the secrets of the legendary bluefin tuna, on a quest for the last refuge of a giant among fish.
It is the ultimate marine animal – one of the fastest, most powerful and most intelligent fishes in the sea. But it’s also the most highly prized. Worth more than its weight in silver, it’s being fished to the brink of extinction. Now, in an epic quest, three-time Emmy award-winning cinematographer Rick Rosenthal plies the Atlantic and plumbs the secrets of the bluefin tuna.
[This is the director Rick Rosenthal’s definitive cut of Hot Tuna, internationally known in Europe and Asia, narrated by David Attenborough. The film features spectacular aerial and historic underwater filmmaking, probing the global treks of the super-fast, elusive and endangered Bluefin giants.]
Presented in collaboration with Heaven in Ocean Productions.
