My Champlain Valley
Rating: 2/5 -- It is heartfelt, but its periodic attempts at thriller-style bouts of excitement are redundant, and I wondered sometimes if the film-makers were sure what exactly their story was. Full Review
Rating: 7/10 -- Suspenseful documentary, chronicling an ecological crisis in the Sea of Cortez. Full Review

Description by OLDIES.com:
In Mexico's Sea of Cortez, a group of dedicated scientists, high-tech activists, investigative journalists and undercover agents attempt to rescue the most endangered and elusive whale on Earth while battling the vicious Mexican drug cartels and Chinese traffickers whose destructive poaching methods are threatening the region's marine life.
Sea of Shadows chronicles the fight for the vaquita porpoise, a cetacean that is endemic to the Gulf of California and is now on the brink of extinction due to being caught in gillnets intended for another critically endangered yet more prized aquatic neighbor, the totoaba. The documentary takes the viewers aboard the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society's boat as they patrol the seas for gillnets and confront poachers. On land, the film explores the politics behind the illegal trade and how it affects the little people. Directed by Richard Ladkani, Sean Bogle, and Matthew Podolsky.
