A complex war between drug cartels, local fishermen, politicians and the Chinses Mafia, has pushed the ecosystem of the Sea of Cortez to the brink. Driven by a demand for the “cocaine of the sea,” a valuable fish called the totoaba whose bladders are prized on the black market as a miracle drug, aggressive fishing has led to the eradication of the Valquita, the world’s smallest whale, and explosive violence in many sleepy fishing towns along Baja’s coast. From filmmaker Richard Ladkani and Executive Producer Leonardo DiCaprio, SEA OF SHADOWS is a documentary thriller like no other. A Sundance premier and Audience Award winner, 2019
