On September 18th, 2019, Sea of Shadows premiered to an exclusive audience of press, politicians and special guests. Almost all the film’s protagonists attended the premiere, which was followed by a press conference that lasted the better part of an hour.

The house was packed with journalists and film crews, as well as high-level members of the government, including the governor-elect of Baja California and top administrators from Procuraduría Federal de Protección al Ambiente (PROFEPA).

This is not a contemplative nature film, this is an action movie, with chases, suspense, crime, and, of course, some wonderful images from the Sea of Cortéz.
