DOXA Documentary Film Festival premiers A Sea Change: Imagine a World Without Fish
DOXA premiered the multiple award winning documentary film A Sea Change: Imagine A World Without Fish, Director Barbara Ettinger’s investigation into the little publicized environmental impact of the ocean's acidification.
Ettinger and her team follow the story of retired history professor Sven Huseby’s mission to discover what is happening to the oceans today and its subsequent impact on the human race. After reading an article in The New Yorker on the acidification of the ocean and the high levels of carbon dioxide absorbed into the ocean, Huseby follows a trail of scientists around the globe, uncovering the dire effects of highly acidic ocean water in a fragile ecosystem.
Huseby’s relationship with his 5 year-old grandson, Elias, inspires his trip around the world to gain knowledge about a rarely publicized environmental tragedy that Elias’ generation will inherit the direct consequences of.
Not all is lost and Ettinger brings the story into focus with hope for a new future by educating the population, utilizing new sources of energy and taking action as a collective group to put pressure on government bodies to address this issue.
A Sea Change is a beautiful film that will inspire a transformation in thought about a rarely addressed but grim topic.
