Yesterday, Sharkwater, a documentary exposing the evils of shark finning, premiered in Hong Kong. The screening was planned for a Monday release to celebrate World Oceans Day, and other events, including a beach clean up and a panel discussion on ocean conservation, coincided with the premiere. The film follows the journey of director Rob Stewart as he goes from underwater adventurer to animal activist, even teaming up with Captain Paul Watson of the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society to battle poachers and fight for animal rights in corrupt courts. In addition to its Hong Kong screening, the film has been released in cities worldwide and is available on DVD in most US markets.
