Everyone likes to watch movies right? And if you can still learn something while sitting on the sofa I think that sounds pretty cool.
I have listed some movies for you that deal with our oceans animals and our planet.
So grab some popcorn and let's go!
When sharks die
Sharkwater (Original title: Sharkwater) is a 2007 Canadian documentary directed by Rob Stewart . The diver, underwater photographer and biologist originally only wanted to make a nice underwater film about sharks in order to refute old prejudices against animals, but then came across illegal businesses and criminal structures that operate so-called shark finning and then also focused on people .
BLUE is a provocative journey into the realm of the oceans that experiences this critical moment in the time when the marine world is on an abyss. Sharkgirl Madison Stewart is an "Ocean Guardian" in the documentary.
A PLASTIC OCEAN
Journalist Craig Lesson's original goal is initially to encounter the blue whale. But in doing so he discovers the vast amount of plastic in the ocean. Together with divers and scientists he investigates 20 places in the oceans of our world with the result that the world's oceans are in an alarming state. His team suggests working solutions that would have an immediate effect on counteracting pollution.
WATSON- Make Waves
Captain Paul Watson, co-founder of Greenpeace and founder of Sea Shepherd, has fought for 40 years to end the destruction of wildlife and ocean habitats, and the documentary features recap of his fascinating life and how he cared for our animals begins.
KISS THE GROUND
The documentation aims to show a hopeful future for agriculture. It shows the impact that changing the way we deal with the earth has. It's not just about compost, but also about renewable agriculture and biodiversity. It is discussed how to create a positive change in the daily cycle of grazing animals. It also shows the importance of healthy eating in relation to a healthy planet.
MY OCTOPUS TEACHER
One day a filmmaker decides he needs to change something in his life and starts diving. In an algae forest off the coast of South Africa, he meets a female octopus, which immediately casts a spell on him. An unusual friendship develops between the two and the fascinating sea creature shows him the wonders of his unique underwater world anew every day.
13 years later, the documentary filmmaker delivers a status update. Stewart delves deeper into the global shark fin industry. From West Africa to Spain and Central America to France and California he uncovered criminal machinations - a dangerous expedition that illustrates once again how the ruthless killing of sharks endangers our ecosystem. A film that unfortunately ends tragically.
RIP Rob: /
The filmmakers document how in the Japanese coastal town of Taiji around 2,000 dolphins, mainly bottlenose dolphins , are regularly herded into a bay that is not visible and is sealed off from the outside world by fences, barbed wire and security personnel.
The most beautiful animals are separated and then sold to dolphinariums around the world, the remaining animals are killed.
Tilikum is a captive orca who was involved in three human incidents that resulted in their deaths. Original recordings of Tilikum's attacks on his coaches and interviews with witnesses can be seen. The documentation focuses on the effects of captivity on tilikum and orcas in general. The actual catch and the stress that is triggered in the animals during this time is also addressed.
A LIFE ON OUR PLANET
At the age of 93 David Attenborough has visited every continent on our planet, explored the wildest places on earth and documented life in all its diversity and with all its wonders. On his travels, Attenborough has also observed firsthand the influence of humans on nature. His documentation not only shows the evolution of life on earth, but also the disappearance of untouched places in nature and its prospects for the future.
What was originally intended as a homage to the great blue seas has turned into a spectacular story of revelation: The filmmaker Ali Tabrizi traveled halfway around the world for his documentary "Seaspiracy", spoke to those responsible and often put himself in danger in order to Uncover hidden truths about the destruction of the oceans. "Seaspiracy" examines the fishing industry and its enormous impact on the oceans and the climate.
