A screening of “Sea Of Shadows” will be held on the deck of Gurney’s Montauk on Friday, August 16. The film is part of the Hamptons International Film Festival’s Air, Land, + Sea series.
“Sea Of Shadows,” with Leonardo DiCaprio as executive producer, follows a team of dedicated scientists, high-tech conservationists, investigative journalists, and courageous undercover agents, as well as the Mexican Navy, as they put their lives on the line to save the last remaining vaquitas — an endangered species of porpoise — and bring the vicious international crime syndicate to justice.
HIFF Artistic Director David Nugent will be on hand at the screening, as will Dr. Cynthia Smith, the program manager of Vaquita CPR. The film is the winner of the Audience Award at the 2019 Sundance Film Festival.
The event begins with the Air, Land, + Sea sunset reception at 6:30 PM, followed by the outdoor film screening at 8:30 PM. Tickets are $23 for current HIFF members. Visit www.hamptonsfilmfest.org/features/sea-of-shadows-gurneys.
