Sonic Sea (2017) Film and Q&A

Event Description:

Throughout the ocean, whales depend on sound to mate, find food, migrate, and defend against predators. A century ago the seas were silent, but now humans fill them with an unbearable cacophony – the sonic “bombs” of oil prospectors, the whirr of freight ships, the shrieks of military sonar – driving whales to death and disorientation. Sonic Sea (2017), narrated by Rachel McAdams and featuring Sting, tells the story of Ken Balcomb, a former Navy officer who solved the tragic mystery of a mass stranding, and the global network of scientists working to limit our deadly clamor.

Join us for the screening of Sonic Sea. Following the film, there will be a Q&A with Dr. Howard Rosenbaum, Ocean Giants Director, Wildlife Conservation Society, who will be joined by Environmental Studies and Animal Studies faculty and scholars including Jennifer Jacquet (Assistant Professor Environmental Studies, NYU) and Yanoula Athanassakis (Director of the Environmental Humanities Initiative, NYU).

Co-sponsored by NYU Animal Studies, Nandini Thiyagarajan (Animal Studies Fellow, NYU).
