White Waves

Reihe: Greenmotions Filmfestival 2017
Regie: Inka Reichert
OmeU | 80 Min.
Litter, wastewater, industrial products and chemicals – it is all ending up in the sea. This is often happening without anybody hearing anything about it. But there are some people that observe and feel the pollution day by day with their own body: surfers. As soon as there is some swell they grab their board and ride the waves, in winter and summer. Water is their life. And they want to protect it. The team of White Waves traveled for two years along the beaches of Europe to meet those surfers and reveal widely unknown cases of pollution – from millions of small plastic wheels to pathogenic bacteria in the sea.
