While the Pelagic Life team is chasing the elusive sardine baitball in the open ocean near Baja California, they stumble upon a crude shark fishing operation that sparks a seismic shift in the group's thinking. Departing from their original concept of documenting awesome sea-life phenomenon, they transform their mission to creating awareness of Mexico's sea-life while creating sustainable livelihoods for the shark fishermen in order to preserve a delicate and critical ecosystem. Mexico Pelagico is the story of an unlikely pairing of interests. It is clear that once you swim alongside sharks, sailfish, dolphin, turtles and even crocodiles, your perspective will never be the same. Mexico Pelagico invites the audience to engage with Mexico's rich and majestic oceanic treasures, to be inspired and awed to take up the mantle of respect and conservation through ecotourism. Written by Jorge Cervera Hauser

A brilliant film made with passion
2 August 2016 | by ScarletViewSee all my reviews

I was lucky enough to get a screener of Mexico Pelagico before it was released and, having seen the trailer and knowing the people involved are of such high quality, I expected it to be good and certainly was not disappointed.

Primarily I love the story, these are people out there making a difference and the film follows their journey. Because they have such a deep understanding of the issues they are covering, the content is outstanding and has a lovely human element to it which really engages the viewer. Plus, everyone involved comes across really well and extremely likable which helps sell the story.

The film is well shot, creative and beautifully crafted and I enjoyed it immensely.

Definitely worth a watch!
