20K Collective saw "Mission Blue" at the Hot Docs Film Festival!
Last night I accompanied passionate water issues activist and Sci-Fi author Kaz Lefave to the Hot Docs premiere of Mission Blue. Mission Blue is a film about ground-breaking scientist (or should that be water-breaking scientist) Dr. Sylvia Earle.
Dr. Earle is an inspiration for our own Dr. Aronnax in Twenty Thousand Leagues Under Tne Sea!
An aquanaut, marine botanist, submersible designer, and the former head of the NOAA - National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration - Dr. Earle is a ground-breaking (water-breaking?) pioneer in ocean exploration. Dr. Earle's passion is to map the ocean and develop protected areas, just as we do with parks and reserves on land.
Dr.Earle was present with the codirector Robert Nixon and HotDocs programmer Heather Haynes, and answered questions from the audience incredibly well: evidence-based, realistically, but always with hope and making the audience feel our own agency to effect change.
MISSION BLUE SCREENS AGAIN AT HOT DOCS.
