Rumor has it that some fishermen in Indonesia have a very special relationship with giants of the sea. A team of underwater filmmakers and photographers steps off the beaten path and take their cameras on a journey deep into an almost unknown region in Indonesia to discover a newly discovered whale shark population. 

They get up close and personal with the animals underwater, and tell a rare story of peaceful coexistence between humans and sharks – a story that we can take something away from.

The film crew:

Hendrik S. Schmitt, Claudia Schmitt, Ben Trayner, Audita Harsono, Andy Wheatcroft, Alex Kydd, Emma Hanney, Sascha Blank
