lionfish - new pirates of the caribbean



Category A / Director Ulf Marquardt / Germany 2017 / 52 min / Lihula Theater Hall 22.09 - 13:30


He is by far the coolest fish in the block: Armed with eighteen venomous spines… It hunts, invisible to its prey, in packs … It is a multi-talented enigma… The Red Lionfish. It also has grand ambitions, spreading to  unprepared waters: the Atlantic Ocean.
The film sheds light on fascinating behaviour and  abilities that let the lionfish conquer foreign waters, and by doing so, threatening entire ecosystems.
With amazing visuals, highspeed footage, and behaviour never been filmed before, the movie tells a suspenseful wildlife story on three continents.
