From the beaches of Africa and the ports of the Middle East, a shark fin odyssey arrives back at ground zero - Hong Kong.
'Man & Shark' is a short film about the barbaric practice of shark-finning in developing nations, so that consumers in Hong Kong and China can eat shark fin soup at their weddings, company banquets and celebrations.
This sometimes graphic short film aims to show why sharks, as the ocean's apex predators, are necessary to keep the marine ecosystem in balance.
The film also bears witness to the ignorance of shopkeepers that sell shark fin in Hong Kong. And it explores why Chinese people eat shark fin soup in the first place, ...and the dangers to them from mercury poisoning.
'Man & Shark' was shot on location in Mozambique, Yemen, and Hong Kong and includes underwater footage from Indonesia and Fiji.
