Performance Notes

× This beautifully crafted siren call about human impacts on oceans was a hit with audiences at ALFF 2018. 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. Nothing is as important to life on this planet as our oceans. The omnibus Australian Blue plunges us into glorious waters in Australia, Hawaii, the South Pacific, the Philippines and Indonesia, introducing us to individuals who have devoted their lives to direct action and education on our seas’ behalf. A cogently argued, beautifully shot and truly inspired call to battle, this film provides a beautiful but bracing view of what needs to—and can—be done now. Blue is a provocative journey into the ocean realm, witnessing this critical moment in time when the marine world is on a precipice. Directed by Karina Holden, 2017, Australia, 70 minutes Winner of the Best Impact Award at the 2017 Vancouver International Film Festival.
