Hot Tuna Film Screening
Thursday July 26, 2012
By Edhat Subscriber
Fast and furious, the bluefin tuna has always been an elusive quarry for filmmakers. Santa Barbara-
based marine biologist and wildlife filmmaker Rick Rosenthal is one of the few who have filmed bluefin
in the wild and, not too soon, as the bluefin tuna are being fished to dangerously low levels. On July 26,
2012, at 7:00 p.m., the Carsey-Wolf Center will screen the new documentary HOT TUNA at UC Santa
Barbara's new state-of-the-art Pollock Theater.
Rosenthal will be on hand to share new behind-the-scenes footage and answer audience questions. The
event concludes with a reception. Admission is free. Information and reservations are available at:
In HOT TUNA, Rosenthal ventures across the north Atlantic, up the restless Gulf Stream, and to the
depths of the tuna's sprawling range. HOT TUNA plumbs the secrets of the legendary bluefin tuna, on a
quest for the last refuge of a giant among fish.
Rick Rosenthal, an EMMY and BAFTA award-winning cinematographer, was a principal cameraman for
BBC's landmark BLUE PLANET series, and the feature film DEEP BLUE. He also filmed on the blockbuster
series PLANET EARTH and Disney Nature's EARTH. The BBC, PBS and Discovery channels commissioned
three of his whale films RIDDLE OF THE RIGHT WHALE, HUMPBACK WHALES and SPERM WHALES BACK
FROM THE ABYSS for worldwide broadcast.
The event is sponsored by the Carsey-Wolf Center's Blue Horizons Program, Associated Students
Coastal Fund, and UCSB Summer Session.
