In Indonesia, the ocean plays a critical role in people’s livelihood; from their food to their careers. But that important life source is under threat from overwhelming amounts of plastic.

Unfortunately, this pollution is fueled from one of Indonesia’s most popular tourist destinations, Bali. This, combined with plastic from the rest of the world, washes up on beaches, gets hooked by local fishermen, and damages marine ecosystems.

This film follows Wayan, a 90-year-old Balinese fisherman using all his resources and knowledge to tackle this growing problem, one net of trash at a time.

This is Voice Above Water, a production from Turning Tides Films.
