June 8 ~ Across Sound Connections celebrates oceans screening ocean films @ 7:30 pm
SAVING THE OCEAN with Carl Safina ~ written, produced and directed by John Angier two – 30 min. films with hopeful news on conservation efforts to restore oceans in peril.
Cod Comeback ~ Carl Safina goes fishing to find some of the first signs that the famous codfish [of the Northeast Atlantic] just might, indeed, be coming back.
Shark Reef ~ also follows Dr. Safina as he travels 15 miles offshore Belize to a barrier reef forming the central core of a reef system second only in size to Australia’s Great Barrier. With the relentless pressure of the shark fin trade, sharks are in trouble everywhere — almost. Glover’s Reef Reserve in Belize shows how sharks can thrive and local people can still fish.
SHARKWATER (90 min.) ~ Driven by passion fed from a life-long fascination with sharks, Stewart debunks historical stereotypes and media depictions of sharks as bloodthirsty, man-eating monsters and reveals the reality of sharks as pillars in the evolution of the seas.
Heaven in Ocean Productions’ collaborators include established & independent ocean filmmakers and production companies, with local ecosystem researchers/activists and ocean conservation partners.
“Sharkwater takes you into the most shark rich waters of the world, exposing the exploitation and corruption surrounding the world's shark populations in the marine reserves of Cocos Island, Costa Rica and the Galapagos Islands, Ecuador.”
