Shadows in a Desert Sea
An extraordinary glimpse into a vast and complex underwater community, this multi award-winning production takes a look at the Sea of Cortez through the eyes of a tiny barnacle blenny.
Impressive cinematography from the world-famous marine photographers Howard and Michele Hall records the drama that unfolds around this tiny fish as it shelters near the summit of a large seamount. Moray eels stalk unsuspecting prey as giant squid rise from the depths and legions of hammerhead sharks pass overhead, casting their formidable shadows.
A visually stunning profile of life in the thousand mile stretch of water between the Baja California Peninsula and the Pacific Coast of Mexico. Beautifully filmed, this fifty minute programme is an outstanding example of the Halls' adventurous filmmaking style. An intriguing account of a flourishing ecosystem, it won the coveted Golden Panda at Wildscreen 1992.
