Description:SEARCH FOR THE SHARK CALLERS features the dying art of summonsing sharks, a tradition still being practised in the Solomon Islands. We take a two month kayak trip across the Solomon Islands, visiting artificial islands, witnessing local ceremonies, steaming volcanoes and pagan dances, culminating in dramatic footage of a native high priest and the agitated sharks that he attracts.
