about the film
Blue is a feature documentary film charting the drastic decline in the health of our oceans. With more than half of all marine life lost and the expansion of the industrialization of the seas, the film sets out the challenges we are facing and the opportunities for positive change.
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.
Tim Winton, Author and Patron of the Australian Marine Conservation Society
If you care about the future of this planet, watch this film with your friends and family. Mourn what we’ve lost, celebrate and defend what we still have, and be a part of the change that will be needed to secure our future together as a species.
Humans are air breathing, terrestrial animals for whom seventy percent of the planet is marine and a mystery. Yet in the Anthropocene, we are having an astonishing global impact, depleting life and plasticizing the seas and all life forms on Earth. This searing documentary should open all eyes to what is happening to the biosphere.
Will McCallum, Head of Oceans, Greenpeace UK
