From the Wild Sea

78 min. I England, Ireland, the Netherlands I 2021

As the peak of winter draws near, Europe’s marine animal rescue volunteers are bracing themselves for the rough season. Night and day, all year round, they work tirelessly to rescue coastal wildlife from life-threatening elements: Oil. Plastic. Storms. Climate change fuels violent weather across the seas, and the escalating winter storms are coming at them with an unprecedented roar. 
FROM THE WILD SEA is a creative documentary film that zooms in on the complex collision between human and nature. We are taken on a disturbing and fascinating journey into the emerging Anthropocene Era, seen from both the human and animal perspective. As humans attempt to rescue marine creatures, each individual animal looks back at us with inquisitive eyes. FROM THE WILD SEA paints a sensorial, touching picture of our modern world while exploring how we are all connected in an immense, nuanced system stretching far beyond the human race.
