International Ocean Film Tour 2017
The ocean is our greatest adventure playground and likely the biggest treasure chest of nature. With its dazzling diversity of species, the ocean never fails to amaze us and encourages us to protect what we love. The International OCEAN FILM TOUR 2017 wraps the most powerful stories, inspiring protagonists and stunning visuals into one film program to show us the place where all life began.

1 night, 7 films, 120 minutes.

The Weekend Sailor
Mexico 2016 | Direction: Bernardo Arsuaga |
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.
Shorebreak – The Clark Little Story
USA 2016 | Direction: Peter King | Production: FIND YOUR CALLING presents in association with POSTMILL STUDIOS | 18 minutes
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.
The Legacy
Mexico 2016 | Direction: Erick Higuera, Eréndira Valle | Production: Erick Higuera | 5 minutes
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.
A Plastic Ocean
USA 2016 | Direction: Craig Leeson |
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?
