700 Sharks Into The Dark
700 sharks live in the south pass of Fakarava, a preserved atoll of French Polynesia. This pack represents the highest density of gray reef sharks known to date. In this horde of animals fighting to survive, the energy of the hungry is king. As soon as a prey is flushed out, a pack forms and the chaos turns to order. The sharks perform crazy choreographies which end in a rain of fish scales. Slaves of their instinct, thousands of groupers join the perilous ballet to reproduce here, once a year, as sacrificed volunteers. That such a slice of wild nature still exists, is simultaneously reassuring, frightening and dazzling. After 4 years of expeditions, this miracle from the animal world finally emerges from the dark.
