From the beaches of Africa, to the ports of the Middle East , a shark fin odyssey arrives back at Ground Zero... Hong Kong .
'Man & Shark' is book, and short film of the same name, which explores 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 other celebrations.
The multimedia project aims to show why sharks, as the ocean's apex predators, are necessary to keep the marine ecosystem in balance. 'Man & Shark' also bears witness to the ignorance of shopkeepers selling shark fin in Hong Kong . It also explores why Chinese people eat shark fin soup in the first place, and the dangers to health from mercury poisoning.
'Man & Shark' was conceived in Mozambique , Yemen , and Hong Kong , and includes many underwater images of sharks from all over the world.
