FRIDAY HARBOR FILM FESTIVAL presents: Mission Blue
Mission Blue Legendary oceanographer; Sylvia Earle is on a personal mission to save our oceans. Mission Blue is part oceanic road trip, part biography, part action adventure story, and part expose of an eco-disaster.
The film deftly weaves her unique personal history with the passion that consumes her today: creating a global parks system for the ocean that she calls “Hope Spots.” Mission Blue, shot during a three-year period in numer- ous locations around the world, tackles the daunting challenge of how to protect the global ocean that is now under attack as never before. Ambitious in its visual language, goals, and passions for change, the film is a wake-up call for everyone who has ever cared about or experienced the ocean, as well as for those far inland who are dependent on rainwater, clean air, and weather cycles regulated by the ocean. As Sylvia says, “No blue, no green. No ocean, no us.”
