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 (2017, PG) is the story our generation needs to hear. The industrialisation 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.
