Sea of Life
The ocean is the source of all life on earth and it’s in trouble. Sea of Life follows filmmaker Julia Barnes on an underwater adventure to discover the truth about the biggest threats facing the ocean and ultimately ourselves. Inspired by Rob Stewart’s Revolution, young filmmaker Julia Barnes finds herself on an epic journey around the world to save the ecosystems we depend on for survival. Sea of Life brings audiences from the beautiful world of coral reefs, into the heart of the environmental movement, meeting passionate scientists, activists, and explorers who reveal an enormous opportunity in the face of this challenge, to rise up and become the heroes the world needs.
