A Voice Above Nature

A Voice Above Nature is a short film being shown as part of the Take One Action Film Festival. It explains the issue of oceanic noise pollution by expressing whale song and dolphin echolocation visually, filming in black and white the vibrations of water. And then it introduces man-made oceanic noise such as ship engines to show how the prevalence of this has come to blind sea creatures. Content warning, there are images of beached whales in this. The shocking thing is that oceanic noise pollution could be cleared with a mere 18 hour cessation of human activity in the oceans. Something that small, would take less than a day. But the welfare of others will always be matched against the money to be made. Our problems are not unsolvable, just not profitable to solve.
