BLUE

76 min Documentary Feature | 2017

BLUE is a cinematic song for our oceans; beautiful, intimate and grand. Fearlessly truth-telling, yet passionately hopeful. See this film and you will want to rise up with the waves.
— Greenpeace Australia

Half of all marine life has been lost in the last 40 years. 

By 2050 there will be more plastic in the sea than fish. 

BLUE is the story our generation need to hear. The industrialization that has occurred in the oceans over the last century, mirrors the events that triggered mass extinctions on land. Industrial scale fishing, habitat destruction, species loss and pollution have placed the ocean in peril. The very nature of the sea is being irretrievably altered. BLUE is a provocative journey into the ocean realm, witnessing this critical moment in time when the marine world is on a precipice.

Our ocean has been the guardian of life on earth.

Now it is our turn to be guardians for the ocean.
