"Chasing the Thunder" is a high-seas documentary about the Sea Shepherd’s epic 110-day, 10,000-mile chase of the “Thunder,” considered the world’s most notorious poaching vessel. Across two seas and three oceans, the marine activists hunted the fugitive fishing ship through massive ice floes, storms-tossed seas, a near collision and violent clashes.
“Chasing The Thunder” aims to raise awareness about ocean health and illegal fishing through the film and it was shown at EarthxFilm, which is a 21st century film festival that uses the power of film and emerging media to raise awareness of environmental and social global issues.
The screening will be followed by an audience Q&A with filmmaker Mark Benjamin. Mr. Benjamin aptly refers to this film as "a rare environmental documentary with a happy ending." You will want to give it a standing ovation when it ends.
