Deadpool star Ryan Reynolds lends his voice to a compelling new documentary which recounts the fight to end Canada's brutal commercial seal hunt. Produced by the International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW) Huntwatch highlights forty years of ongoing activism which brought graphic images of bloody ice floes too sensitive for most direct to people's living rooms. Appalled by what he saw, a charismatic young activist named Brian Davies set out on a personal crusade to save the seals. Little did he know the battle would last the rest of his life.
