More than four years in the making, MISSION BLUE is legendary oceanographer Dr. Sylvia Earle’s eye-opening wake-up call to save the world’s seas. Directed by Robert Nixon (“Gorillas in the Mist”), and Fisher Stevens (“The Cove”) the film follows Dr. Earle on her global quest to protect our oceans—and the extraordinary marine life that call them home—from the powerful forces of pollution, overfishing and climate change. The film also sheds light on Sylvia’s remarkable personal story and professional journey, from her earliest memories exploring the ocean as a young girl to her days leading daring undersea missions, offering insight on the sacrifices, difficulties and tough choices she faced along the way.
For generations, we have believed that the ocean is too big to fail—but that’s no longer true. And having logged more than 7000 hours underwater, Dr. Earle is uniquely positioned to help us understand why.
