Top pick: Envoy: Shark Cull
Narrated by actor Eric Bana, Envoy: Shark Cull is a feature-length documentary taking aim at Australia’s controversial government shark control programs. Featuring interviews with leading experts in ocean conservation, such as Sea Shepherd, Ocean Ramsey, and Madison Stewart, this film captures these programs’ shockingly ineffective practices and the catastrophic effects they’ve had not only along Australia’s coasts, but also across the globe. It’s an urgent topic worthy of our attention, not to mention the perfect pick for Shark Week (7/11 – 7/18).
