One Ocean Film Tour 2021 Short-Film Program

Whales in a Changing Ocean

In Antarctica, nothing is stationary. The only constant is change. One noticeable and increasingly evident change is the recovery of the humpback whales that feed in the waters off the Antarctic Peninsula, after industrial whaling almost wiped them out. In February 2020, wildlife filmmaker Richard Sidey was invited to join a team of scientists undertaking humpback whale research in Antarctica with Conservation International. Whales in a Changing Ocean follows the team as they observe humpback whale behaviour and gather information vital to protecting the Antarctic continent into the future.

A Life of Endless Summers: The Bruce Brown Story

A Life of Endless Summers, The Bruce Brown Story is the exclusive retrospective story on Bruce Brown’s life told by the one who knew him best, his son, Dana Brown. It’s a story of a man, a father, a husband, a filmmaker, a pioneer, a legend – a story of a life well-lived.

Eating Up Easter

Eating Up Easter is a feature-length documentary directed by native Rapanui filmmaker Sergio Mata’u Rapu. The film explores the dilemma his people are facing. Crafted as a story passed down to his newborn son, Sergio intertwines the authentic history of the island with the stories of four islanders. In their own voices, these Rapanui reveal the reality of modern life and the actions they are taking to preserve their culture and environment amidst rapid development.

Murder at Sea

“Murder at Sea” the thriller will expose the true cost of unchecked industrial fishing worldwide, the human lives sacrificed, the money made, the mounting environmental damage and the international security threats. This Greenpeace investigation film opens with a multiple murder mystery; the crime scene is the dazzling Western Central Pacific, where island nations dominate the seascape. Yet their fish stocks, their most valuable resource, are being strip-mined by voracious distant-water fishing fleets.


A solo-circumnavigation is a daunting challenge for just about any sailor, let alone a sailor who happens to be a double amputee. Singlehanded takes us through the waters of Antarctica and the infamous Drake Passage (considered one of the most treacherous sailing destinations in the word) with Dustin Reynolds, the survivor of a life-altering accident who has sailed more than 20,000 miles alone over the past five years.

The Last Vaquita

A pair of brothers head to Mexico where they join a crew of ocean conservationists who are fighting to save the most endangered marine mammal on the planet.

A Boy’s Journey: Crossing The Alenuihaha Channel

About World Oceans Day:
The purpose of the Day is to inform the public of the impact of human actions on the ocean, develop a worldwide movement of citizens for the ocean, and mobilize and unite the world’s population on a project for the sustainable management of the world’s oceans. They are a major source of food and medicine and a critical part of the biosphere. In the end, it is a day to celebrate together the beauty, the wealth and the promise of the ocean.
