Synopsis: Sharkwater: Extinction (2018) is a thrilling and inspiring action packed journey that follows filmmaker Rob Stewart as he exposes the massive illegal shark fin industry and the political corruption behind it — a conspiracy that is leading to the extinction of sharks. From West Africa, Spain, Panama, Costa Rica, France, and even in our own backyard, Stewart’s third film dives into the often violent underworld of the pirate fishing trade to expose a multi-billion dollar industry. Shark finning is still rampant, shark fin soup is still being consumed on an enormous scale, and endangered sharks are now also being used to make products for human consumption.
Sharkwater Extinction is the followup to late Rob Stewart’s 2006 Documentary Sharkwater, about the industry behind SharkFin Soup. What makes this install ent more somber is that Stewart passed-away before filming had wrapped. This is the legacy that he is leaving behind, a powerful, passionate, eye-opening way to remember him.
What makes Sharkwater Extinction such a great and powerful Documentary is that it shows that since the 2006 events that Sharkwater brought to light, unfortunately not all that much has changed. Yes, there are laws in place but the profits are so great that governments and citizens don’t care. The Documentary is beautifully-s, and truly haunting as it brings to light how truly endangered sharks really are, moreover now than ever before.
Sharkwater Extinction premieres on Friday September, 7 at Roy Thomson Hall, 2 PM.
