Sharkwater




On May 13, 2012, Sea Shepherd Conservation Society founder Paul Watson was arrested for protecting sharks in 2002. Join Sea Shepherd Conservation Society for a screening of the documentary Sharkwater, which captures the incident that led to his arrest. For filmmaker Rob Stewart, exploring sharks began as an underwater adventure. What it turned into was a beautiful and dangerous life journey into the balance of life on earth. 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. 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.

In an effort to protect sharks, Stewart teams up with renegade conservationist Captain Paul Watson of the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society. Their unbelievable adventure together starts with a battle between the Sea Shepherd and shark poachers in Guatemala, resulting in conflicts with pirate boats, gunboat chases, mafia espionage, corrupt court systems and attempted murder charges, forcing them to flee for their lives and eventually leading to Paul Watson’s arrest in Frankfurt on May 13, 2012. Captain Watson is currently under house arrest in Germany, awaiting possible extradition to Costa Rica.

After the documentary, Sea Shepherd volunteers will take questions about our campaigns across the world, including the summer 2012 shark defense campaign in the South Pacific. Crew members and on-shore volunteers will be on hand to discuss how you can help release Paul Watson, get involved in Sea Shepherd and become a member. We will also be selling official Sea Shepherd merchandise.

“i could have lived without the chapters on the royals of britain, but other than that, this is a sterling example of a memoir by a public figure!”

“Her husbands, for example, are never even referred to by name — Number One, Number Two, Number Three. (Taking feminism a little far, don’t you think?)”

“In the time-honored tradition of celebrity memoir, Helen Reddy’s The Woman I Am is utterly scannable without worrying itself with soul searching or excessive detail. I nonetheless studied it like it was the Torah.”
