Guardians of the Strait Trailer (2016)
Trailer for the documentary Guardians of the Strait, which screened at the Melbourne International Film Festival.
Cutting directly through bustling Istanbul, the Strait of Bosphorus is one of the busiest trading routes on Earth, with a new cargo ship or supertanker entering its congested, chaotic waters every 10 minutes. The oil they carry is the lifeblood of Europe, but with human error, crumbling vessels and the Bosphorus' own treacherous currents at play, it's only a matter of time until disaster strikes.
From acclaimed documentary-maker Claire Jager comes Guardians of the Strait, a fascinating exploration of the almost unknown and unregulated issue of maritime traffic and its potentially disastrous consequences. Focusing on the small army of journalists, activists and fishermen battling to keep the Bosphorus safe and pristine, Guardians of the Strait is a documentary of cinematic ambition and style that tells an urgent, captivating and necessary tale.
