WHAT: ocean documentary and discussionJoin us at the Surfing Florida Museum in our vibrant West Palm Beach Warehouse District for a free, award-winning documentary film co-hosted by the museum and the West Palm Beach Office of Sustainability on Friday evening, November 15th.
"Blue the Film" takes us on a provocative journey into our ocean realm, witnessing a critical moment in time when the marine world is on a precipice. Featuring passionate advocates for ocean preservation, “Blue” takes us into the world where the story of our changing ocean is unfolding. We meet those who are defending habitats, campaigning for smarter fishing, combating marine pollution and fighting for the protection of keystone species. This feature documentary comes at a time when we are making critical decisions that will decide the legacy we leave for generations to come.
In this family-friendly, 75-minute film, we will see that there is a way forward and the time to act is now.
