Described as a “cinematic song for our oceans”, Karina Holden’s “beautiful, intimate and grand” documentary film is out now on Blu-ray (as well as digital and DVD)
Having been released on Digital earlier this year, audiences can now enjoy Karina Holden’s “beautiful, intimate and grand” documentary film on Blu-ray.
Blue, which Greenpeace Australia said was a “cinematic song for our oceans” comes from the renowned producer of Luke Warm Sex and Changing Minds: The Inside Story. Here Holden takes us on a provocative journey into the ocean to witness a critical moment for marine life.
Featuring inspirational guides, Madison Stewart, Lucas Handley, Philip Mango, Mark Dia, Tim Silverwood, Valerie Taylor and marine eco-toxicologist Dr Jennifer Lavers, who each want to protect the ocean and show how others can help do the same, Holden’s Blue considers the impact of mass industrialisation of the ocean.
A fascinating and important story concerning industrial scale fishing, species destruction, habitat loss and pollution, Blue has received critical acclaim with The Australian proclaiming it’s “an important reminder of the fragility of our planet’s environment”.
Timely and compelling, the film presents grave detail with a refreshing and even-handed honesty. We learn that half of all marine life has been lost over the last four decades. By 2050, if our carelessly continues, there will be more plastic in the sea than fish. However, Holden finds a sense of hope amidst the gloom. It’s not too late to make a positive difference.
Blue is out now on Digital, DVD and Blu-ray.
