Together with the Australian Marine Science Association and Sydney Institute of Marine Science, we're proud to present a series of marine-themed documentary film evenings including Q & A sessions with the scientists and film-makers involved.

1. The Search for the Ocean's Super-Predator *BOOKED OUT*
Directed by Michael Lynch
Tuesday 29 April
6.30 pm

In the depths of Australia’s Southern Ocean, a Great White Shark is savagely attacked by a far larger mystery predator. The electronic tracking device attached to its fin records a high-speed underwater chase before the shark and its tag are devoured.

Two weeks later, after being carried in the belly of the unknown killer, the still-functioning tag is excreted and washed ashore holding clues that could reveal the identity of the super predator. Follow investigators as they delve into the mystery of the ocean’s most fearsome predators.

Panel speakers: Karina Holden, Filmmaker and TV executive responsible for commissioning the film for the ABC; Dr Michelle Blewitt, marine mammal expert featured in the film; Dr Mandy Reid, deep sea squid expert from the Australian Museum. Filmmaker Stephen Oliver will moderate the conversation.
