A public screening and state premiere of the newly released film
Sonic Sea will be shown at the University of Hawaiʻi at Hilo on

The 60-minute documentary about marine noise pollution is narrated
by Rachel McAdams and based on the true story of a former U.S.
Navy officer. Ken Balcomb is credited with solving the tragic
mystery involving a mass whale stranding in the Bahamas, forever
changing how we understand man’s impact on the ocean.

Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW) and Diamond Docs. The film,
directed and produced by Michelle Dougherty and Daniel Hinerfeld,
