Ocean Week screening of ‘Blue’

When: Thursday 6 February, 19:00 | Where: Cinéma Galeries, Brussels

Blue, film poster
Runtime: 76′

To mark Ocean Week 2020, the United Nations and Oceana present: ‘Blue’

BLUE is the story our generation need to hear. The industrialization that has occurred in the oceans over the last century, mirrors the events that triggered mass extinctions on land. Industrial-scale fishing, habitat destruction, species loss and pollution have placed the ocean in peril. The very nature of the sea is being irretrievably altered. BLUE is a provocative journey into the ocean realm, witnessing this critical moment in time when the marine world is on a precipice.
