A film by Madison Stewart- 20 years old, underwater filmmaker and divemaster/ shark conservationist, filming underwater since age 14, raising awareness over legal shark fisheries inside the Great Barrier Reef.
In philosophy, a razor is a principle or premise that allows one to eliminate unlikely explanations for a phenomenon, Hitchens razor states that the burden of proof or onus in a debate lies with the claim-maker, and if they do not meet it, the opponent does not need to argue against the unfounded claim. I named my film this because it speaks directly at the higher powers I have had to deal with, the corporations, fisheries, our government, and that fact that all have claimed sustainability, yet none have been able to prove it. Hitchens razor is a statement that can be used often in my conversations with them, as no proof exists that the legal shark fisheries on the Great Barrier Reef are or can be sustainable, and merely operate on the basis of 'we are learning by fishing'.
Hitchens razor is a short film I made while fired up one night to express the true form of this movement, and just how personal it is to me. As quoted in the film to the powers allowing the decimation of sharks in our waters "family is everything, and you will answer to an ocean without mine".
