Actors: Ramón Carlín, Enrique Carlín | 40 minutes Seventeen yachts, seven nations, 27,000 miles at sea:
1973 marks the year a sailing trip around the world turned into a race. But when the first Whitbread Round The World Race sets off from Portsmouth, England, it’s not only the Empire’s most renowned sailing teams on the start line. There’s a dark horse
in the competition: Ramón Carlín, aptly named the Weekend Sailor, decides to take part and he’s got company: With a motley crew of friends and family and next to no sailing experience, the 50-year-old Mexican embarks on a voyage to remember. Shunned by the press at fi rst, Carlín turns into the unlikely hot contender of the race. THE WEEKEND SAILOR tells the legendary story of a man the sailing world wasn’t ready for.
First he was a surfer, then he became a photographer. Hawaiian Clark Little has managed to turn his passion for the ocean into a career. Chasing shorebreaks is his bread and butter and capturing the perfect wave is his vocation. His ability to frame the power of the water in a single shot makes his photos a love letter to the ocean.
It has taken only fifty years to destroy dozens of healthy and thriving marine ecosystems due to over- fishing and pollution. Lots of species have vanished from their natural habitat. Almost twenty years ago the pacific manta ray was forced to leave his home in the Gulf of California but it has found a new one in a Mexican archipelago – after it was declared a protected area. The short film THE LEGACY shows how endangered species can recover – if we give them a chance.
Production: Adam Leipzig, Jo Ruxton | 20 minutes
It is no longer a secret that plastic waste is posing a threat to our oceans. The problem is not only the visible pollution: dirty beaches for example. Microplastics – tiny little pieces of plastic – almost invisible, are even more dangerous. It floats in our oceans and gathers in gigantic garbage patches. And from there it finds its way into the food chain. Adventurer and filmmaker Craig Leeson has tracked down plastic waste to get to the bottom of the problem. He connects our con- sumer behaviour with ocean pollution and asks the crucial question: What must we do to save our oceans?
