Discussion to follow with director Robert Nixon


Dir. Robert Nixon | Documentary | U.S.A. | 2017 | 47 min. 

Too often we overlook the fact that harm done to the ocean is harm done to ourselves. Iconic ocean explorer and conservationist Dr. Sylvia Earle embarks on a quest to inspire the next generation of conservationists, scientists, and activists so that “no child is left dry,” as she likes to say. The ultimate goal? To bring about the creation of “blue parks” in what is an imperiled, and still mostly unseen, American underwater wilderness. 

“Captures the dazzling beauty of its ocean locales, both above and
beneath the surface, while soberly reminding us of
the crucial ecological issues—and solutions—at hand.”

– Gary Goldstein, Los Angeles Times


This screening is free for all!
