Mantas Last Dance
Directed by Shawn Heinrichs. 2013. United States. 4 mins.
The time of the manta rays is over, lost to greed and exploitation by humans. Hannah is a wanderer, a sea gypsy, a manta ray reincarnate as person, lost to the world. Alone and searching for a time long past, she gives herself up to the sea, slowly walking into the waves and drifting into the dark abyss. A dance begins with Hannah and the mantas emulating each others movements, a dance they have done a thousand times before. We must act now to protect manta rays or they will be lost forever.
