Movie Review: Planet Ocean

planet oceanGot the chance to watch the film during Cine Europa 17, with the festival’s theme focusing on family and relationships, it was a surprise to me. The only documentary among sixteen (16) films shown in Cagayan de Oro leg.

Can we explain to everyone, the greatest natural mystery of our planet? Can we help our children believe in a better and more sustainable world tomorrow? These were aptly addressed in a beautiful array of underwater life and scenery. It narrates the most marvelous and also the most terrifying human experiences of our time. More than the marvelous blue planet and its current condition, it is a plea for humanity to respect the world in which we live. A call to protect the entire ecosystem – surface and depths – being relatively connected in the universe.

It is time to imagine international stewardship of the ocean, and to believe that we can all react in time. The message is that we can still change direction to remain in our Ocean Planet. The call is to protect 20% of the Ocean by 2020!
