Meet the activists and filmmaker of Blue
June 12 @ 4:05 pm - 6:00 pm UTC+10
Join us after the screening of invigorating Australian ocean documentary BLUE for a discussion about the powerful feature doc and the issues it raises.
On stage will be Shark Girl Madison Stewart, Take 3’s Tim Silverwood, seabird scientist Jennifer Lavers and the film’s director Karina Holden. Each #oceanguardian will talk about how they became involved in marine conservation and their individual efforts to raise awareness. The discussion will revolve around how we can all take action in our daily lives to safeguard the future of the ocean.
The world premiere of an invigorating Australian documentary: a beautifully crafted wake up call to the state of the earth’s oceans, dedicated to creating awareness and change.
As marine biologist and activist Lucas Handley explains, our oceans are in trouble and it’s time we stopped thinking of them as both a place of limitless resources and a dumping ground. His call for action is echoed by passionate advocates for marine preservation, such as shark activist Madison Stewart, FNQ ranger Philip Mango, seabird specialist Dr Jennifer Lavers, sustainability promoter Tim Silverwood, Greenpeace SE Asia’s Mark Dia and long-time campaigner Valerie Taylor.
Filmed over two years in Indonesia, the Philippines, Hawaii and Australia, this cinematic, galvanizing documentary comes at a time when we are making critical decisions that will decide the legacy we leave for generations to come.
