A public screening and state premiere of the newly released film Sonic Sea will be shown at the University of Hawaiʻi at Hilo on Friday, April 8, at 3 p.m. in the Science and Technology Building Room 108.
The 60-minute documentary about marine noise pollution is narrated by Rachel McAdams and based on the true story of a former U.S. Navy officer. Ken Balcomb is credited with solving the tragic mystery involving a mass whale stranding in the Bahamas, forever changing how we understand man’s impact on the ocean.
Sonic Sea was produced by the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) and Imaginary Forces in association with the International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW) and Diamond Docs. The film, directed and produced by Michelle Dougherty and Daniel Hinerfeld, features musician, human rights and environmental activist Sting along with renowned ocean experts Dr. Sylvia Earle, Dr. Paul Spong, Dr. Christopher Clark and Jean-Michel Cousteau.
