When 19-year-old Madison Stewart speaks about her family, she speaks of sharks.
This young Australian conservationist changed her life to protect sharks in the Great Barrier Reef World Heritage Park, where 80,000 sharks are caught every year. And reef sharks are disappearing at an alarming rate, with devastating impact on the entire marine system. Determined to show the world the importance of these mighty creatures she’s never feared, Madison sets out to investigate the Australian shark fisheries and connects with a global network of conservationists to safeguard the animals she loves.
This film produced by Kaufmann Productions has won many awards including clinching the PANDA Award for the best Environment & Conservation film at Wildscreen Film Festival 2014 – that’s like the Oscars of wildlife films!
In conjunction with the My Fin My Life campaign, the Malaysian Nature Society Selangor Branch Marine Group, Golden Screen Cinemas and Australian film producers Gisela Kaufmann and Carlsten Orit are bringing Madison Stewart’s story to the big screen at Hall 11, NU Sentral on 10th September 2016.
The #myfinmylife campaign runs until December 2016 under several non-governmental organisations, including MNS Selangor Branch Marine Group. The campaign aims to reverse the shark decline by getting businesses, governments and individuals to remove shark’s fin soup from menus.
