Voices from The Sea
Films • 36m
In the middle of the Pacific Ocean, there's an island whose inhabitants subsistence depends on the sea. There has been an alarming decline of endemic species in their waters because of overfishing by international factory ships, as well as damaging plastic these same ships discard on their shores. This has led the Rapa Nui people to organize themselves. With an original soundtrack made by Ana Tijoux and narrated by Sylvia Earle, "Voices from the Sea" tells the story about the battle of a remote society to save the sea, and this action becomes an example of courage for the planet.
