By 2050, there will be more plastic than fish in the ocean. This film takes us around the world—to Indonesia, Australia, and even the remote Lord Howe Island in the South Pacific—to see the rapid changes happening beneath the water’s surface, and to meet people who are working to combat marine pollution and save species. These Ocean Guardians have each signed up for one cause and collectively are protecting shorelines and reefs as they fight for sharks, birds, turtles—and us. Their actions speak volumes: the ocean has given to us all, and now it is our turn to be its guardians.

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.” – Greenpeace Australia
