Short documentaries

We are a positive storyteller. Through our activities we inform about and let people experience firsthand the magnitude of plastic pollution to create true ‘Ocean Ambassadors’.

Imagery helps us spreading the message to the rest of the world. This is why we create short documentaries about our sailing expeditions for cleaner oceans. Check out our collection to the right (plus films by others) and upcoming screenings at locations near you below. We look forward to meeting you at one of our events!

  •  By the Ocean we Unite: an awareness journey into plastic pollution (by Anouk van de Beek)

August 2016 we organized our first sailing expedition for cleaner oceans, ‘Up to Norway’. Photographer and filmmaker Anouk van de Beek made a short documentary (30 mins) in which we take the viewer on a journey into plastic pollution based on our journey.

  •  Don’t Litter Roadside (by Jeroen de Wit)

Jeroen Vlimse is a young Dutch student, with a passion for film. Plastic pollution got a hold of him when he started noticing how polluted his neighborhood was. It resulted in him joining us on one of our Mini Expeditions and making a short film (11 mins). Watch below!
