SONIC SEA tells the story of how sound in the ocean (often coming from naval sonar and from commercial ships) is impacting whales and other marine life. The film features oceans protection luminaries including Sylvia Earle and Jean-Michel Cousteau; experts on ocean noise (such as Chris Clark of Cornell, Leila Hatch of NOAA, and Ken Balcomb of the Center for Whale Research); and the performer and activist Sting, who speaks as a musician to the importance of sound. The film is co-produced by NRDC and Imaginary Forces, in association with the International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW) and Diamond Docs. It was written by Mark Monroe (“The Cove,” “Racing Extinction”) and has a haunting score, by Grammy award-winning film composer Heitor Pereira (“Minions,” “It’s Complicated”), and a powerful soundtrack representing both ocean noise and the sounds of the sea.

Co-sponsored by: Mystic Aquarium, Avery Point EcoHuskies, UCONN Marine Sciences Department, and the UCONN Maritime Studies Program
