A new documentary by Santa Barbara filmmaker Keith Malloy, tells the stories of six people who have dedicated their lives to the ocean in different ways. Among them are a spear fisherman in Hawaii, a former coal miner in Australia and a youth worker in San Francisco. Presented by Ventura-based outdoor retailer Patagonia, “Fishpeople,” screens at Patagonia headquarters on Thursday, April 20th and in Santa Barbara at the Sandbox on Friday, April 21st . KCRW’s Jonathan Bastian spoke with Malloy about why he chose to make this film. Clockwise from top left: Dave Rastovich (surfer), Kimi Werner (spearfisher), Matahi Drollet (surfer/fisherman), Lynne Cox (open-water swimmer), Eddie Donnellan (youth worker), Ray Collins (photographer). KCRW: You and your brothers are surfers as well as filmmakers. You could have made a surf film. Why go this route? Keith Malloy: The ocean has affected me in such a positive way, and part of it’s surfing...
No not really... let us not fool ourselves anymore, because of the 'beauty' of images depicting a predator in unnatural behavior with a human.
If you make money by wearing a mesh suit, feeding sharks and showing of tricks. Then please have the amiability to NOT compare yourself to either 1. A conservationist or 2. A Professional guide who takes the time and patience over years to approach sharks on a natural basis.
I don't go to Serengeti park, set down a bucket of food, learn lions to do tricks and call it conservation.
Even if you are woman of the year, PADI's dream queen of marketing...
Wrong is wrong - period!
Where's the difference with what seaworld does...one thing the enclosure. Basta
So this little lucky bugger called "Double Sharkbite" had a hook and line under his right flipper. I went along with the superb volunteers of the Sea Turtle Conservation Curacao and after quickly locating him and after a 5' ordeal by me (removing the hook and some scalpel work), the little fellow went merrily on his way. Loved the experience, more soon on the great work done by these humans for nature.
