Ocean Networks Canada is sponsoring a film screening of the documentary Sonic Sea followed by post-screening discussion about the effects of underwater noise pollution at Wild Water: Victoria International Water Film Festival.
Sonic Sea is a 60-minute documentary about the impact of industrial and military ocean noise on whales and other marine life. It tells the story of a former US Navy officer who solved a tragic mystery and changed forever the way we understand our impact on the ocean. The film is narrated by Rachel McAdams and features Sting, in addition to the renowned ocean experts Dr. Sylvia Earle, Dr. Paul Spong, Dr. Christopher Clark and Jean-Michel Cousteau.
