Hamptons International Film Festival Summerdoc Screening of “Sea of Shadows” at Gurney’s in Montauk, NY – August 16th, 2019

On Friday, August 16th, Hamptons International Film Festival hosted an outdoor screening of Sea of Shadows on the deck of Gurney’s in Montauk as part of its Air, Land + Sea series.

David Nugent, HIFF’s artistic director, was joined by special guests at the screening, which was preceded by a sunset cocktail reception overlooking the ocean featuring cocktails from Casa Dragones tequila & Fleurs de Prairie rose. 

A looming disaster in one of the most spectacular environments on Earth sparks a rescue mission unlike any other in Sea of Shadows, a riveting new documentary with the intensity of a Hollywood thriller from National Geographic Documentary Films.

Directed by Richard Ladkani, Sea of Shadows follows a team of dedicated scientists, high-tech conservationists, investigative journalists and undercover agents as well as the Mexican Navy as they put their lives on the line to save the last remaining vaquitas and bring the international crime syndicate to justice. The film’s executive producer is Leonardo DiCaprio and it was the winner of the Audience Award at the 2019 Sundance Film Festival.

Notable attendees included: Anne Chaisson, David Nugent, Sharon Cardel, Kimberly Berry Haisch, Christina Winters Blaustein, Gary dePersia
