Sharkwater UK Release

Postby Freeshark » Jan 29, 2008 11:25 pm

Sharkwater opens February 22nd.

Having garnered 21 awards at film festivals around the world, filmmaker Rob Stewart’s epic journey Sharkwater puts him on the front lines to save the planet.

Part biologist, part investigative reporter, Stewart follows the trail of the multi-billion dollar shark fin trade and sets off a chain of events that has to be seen to be believed. His adventure becomes a dangerous mission involving espionage, corrupt governments, mafia rings, his arrest and a glimpse at his own mortality.

In an effort to protect sharks, Stewart teams up with renegade conservationist Paul Watson of the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society. A confrontation between the Sea Shepherd and shark poachers in Guatemala results in a dramatic confrontation with a pirate Guatemalan fishing boat. But that’s just the beginning. As they become involved in a gunboat chase, face corrupt court systems and attempted murder charges, they are forced to flee for their lives.

Filmed in 15 countries in visually stunning, high definition video, Sharkwater takes you to the most shark-rich waters of the world, exposing the exploitation and corruption surrounding the world’s shark populations. What one comes away with is a story about the beauty of life on earth and our role in protecting its amazing balance.

Select UK cities will get to see what the buzz is about beginning February 22nd. This release follows a successful run in Canada and America where Sharkwater broke opening weekend box office records, out-grossing the opening weekends of Bowling for Columbine, March of the Penguins and An Inconvenient Truth.

You'll never look at sharks in the same way again.

It is imperative that all shows sell well over this weekend in order to secure a UK wide release and help raise awareness to the plight of this beautiful animal. CAN YOU HELP? We need as much publicity for this movie as possible and Sea Shepherd UK aim to have volunteers at each city location distributing leaflets. The UK premier will be on Thursday 12 February in Soho, London. Myself and other Sea Shepherd activists will campaigning in Chinatown before and after the premier. This is timed to coincide with Chinese New Year when consumption of Shark Fin soup will be at a high.

If you can help at any city, can raise awareness, or want to be involved please e-mail:
