Dispatches From the Outlaw Ocean: The Last Untamed Frontier

10 episodes

The high seas are a lawless frontier where crimes such as murder, slavery, and environmental destruction are often met with impunity and overlooked by the media. But the ocean is also a place of discovery and reinvention, offering freedom from the constraints of society. This 10-part short film series stems from over a decade of reporting by Ian Urbina exploring crime on the high seas. The series chronicles a gritty cast of characters, including traffickers and smugglers, pirates and mercenaries, and vigilante conservationists.
