The plankton of the surface of the ocean produces 50 % of the oxygen which we breath. Enormous underwater currents which take 1000 years per rotation around the earth, manage to stabilize the global temperatures. The Oceans, the source of all life, is also the largest CO2 absorber.

Through evaporation the ocean supplies us not only with fresh drinking water, but also feeds the surrounding cultures since thousands of years with its fish.

Coralreefs and the underwater life at the oceans poles belong to the most flourishing and diverse ones, which humanity can imagine. And even though so immeasurable our civilization is able to put the ecosystem at stakes. The CO2 rise in the atmosphere is also rising the acidity levels of the water, which makes life for corals and all creatures witch skeletons impossible. Plastic transcends all five large oceans. Gigantic fish fleet have made every edible fish an endangered species.

The oceans, and with such our world, are on the edge. The films below present rarely showed correlations and create awareness for a return.

“Those who live by the sea can hardly form a single thought of which the sea would not be part.”
― Hermann Broch
