The Oceans Greatest Feast

Garden Route International Film Festival

Every winter South Africa’s east coast sees billions of sardines converge in the biggest biomass migration on the planet. As they move up the coast, this 4-mile long shoal faces a range of predators from seals in an ancient colony, to Cape gannets launching aerial attacks, and hundreds of hungry sharks that coral the sardines into bait balls. A super pod of dolphins arrives, and the sardine numbers are decimated. Everything favours the predators, until the orcas come.
