LPN co-founder Patima Tungpuchayakul was the subject of the documentary film Ghost Fleet. Inspired by a 2015 Pulitzer-Prize winning Associated Press report, Ghost Fleet tracks Patima on a rescue mission to remote Indonesian Islands. Facing death threats and corruption, Patima and the team risk their lives to find justice and freedom for the enslaved fishermen who feed the world's insatiable appetite for seafood.
Ghost Fleet premiered at Telluride and Toronto Film Festivals and is currently screening at select theaters. The film was directed by Shannon Service and Jeffrey Waldron and produced by Jon Bowermaster and Vulcan Productions.
