Official Selection Sydney Film Festival
Sydney Morning Herald "Even if you imagine you've seen it all before, you might emerge, as I did, newly shaken and vowing to cut down on your use of plastic bags."
This Australian documentary dedicated to creating awareness and change, is a wake up call to the state of the earth's oceans.
"As marine biologist and activist Lucas Handley explains, our oceans are in trouble and it's time we stopped thinking of them as both a place of limitless resources and a dumping ground. His call for action is echoed by passionate advocates for marine preservation, such as shark activist Madison Stewart, FNQ ranger Philip Mango, seabird specialist Dr Jennifer Lavers, sustainability promoter Tim Silverwood, Greenpeace SE Asia's Mark Dia and long-time campaigner Valerie Taylor.
Filmed over two years in Indonesia, the Philippines, Hawaii and Australia, this cinematic, galvanising documentary comes at a time when we are making critical decisions that will decide the legacy we leave for generations to come." (Sydney Film Festival)
Written and Directed by Karina Holden (feature debut)
