Papa Shillingi – a short documentary about whale sharks


Kenyan documentary Papa Shillingi was awarded the prestigious Golden Sea Star at 10. International Underwater Film Festival in Düsseldorf recently. Produced by Volker Bassen together with Katrin Ender, entirely shoot in Diani Beach, Kenya.

“We wanted the film to promote Kenya as a unique tourist destination. There are no other countries in the world where you can swim with the biggest fish on the planet in the morning, and track the biggest land-animal, the elephant, in the afternoon. It is an unbeatable combination.”
