“Our species moves closer to catastrophe every year while we add to the burden of climate change, destroy habitats and plunder the life in our seas. And while it is a difficult fate to contemplate there is no time more urgent than the present to look to our future and protect the natural systems that sustain us.” – Karina Holden, Director, BLUE
Produced over a two-year period and featuring interviews with marine biologists, environmentalists, conservationists and advocates for ocean preservation, the film tackles themes of ocean pollution, habitat destruction and species loss. BLUE looks at how the very nature of the ocean is being altered by human activity.
Half of all marine life has been lost in the last 40 years due to unrestricted fishing, overfishing and the harvesting of fish and other sea creatures for food and exploitation of ocean resources. The pervasiveness of litter and pollutants, deep-sea dumping and oil spills has also hugely impacted ocean health and marine life. By 2050, the film claims, there will be more plastic in the sea than fish.
While this doco makes the crucial link between human actions and the health of our oceans, it also offers practical ways that people can help in order to ensure our oceans – and in a broader sense, our planet’s – survival.
“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.” – David Ritter, CEO, Greenpeace Australia Pacific
