PUMA.Creative has unveiled the environmental documentary film short HOME OCEANS, as part of its larger ocean preservation education campaign. The never-before-seen short film is from Yann Arthus-Bertrand, the director of the visually-stunning environmental documentary, HOME. The 10-minute HOME OCEANS highlights marine issues of: rising floodwaters, the depletion of sea mammals and sea birds, changes to ecosystems, coral reefs and much more. The film will be available for public viewing at each of the ten Volvo Ocean Race global stopover ports, with a premiere at race start in Alicante, Spain at the Volvo Ocean Race Dome and PUMA Quad.
In keeping with the style of the original film, HOME OCEANS approaches the topic of climate change from a unique perspective using only aerial photography to illustrate the transformations made to the earth. The short film not only features the problems facing the open seas, but ways the human race can make changes to help slow down the issues at hand before more damage occurs. Footage was captured in Antarctica, North Pole, Africa, the United States and other locations.
Free screenings of the film will take place at the Volvo Ocean Race stop-over ports at the PUMA Quad and select venues such as local aquariums and history museums. The screenings are in addition to story time readings of the educational book “Marmo Saves Our Seas” with PUMA’s octopus mascot, Marmo, and other related activities.
