There has been an amazing short film making the rounds across all the Ocean Film festivals across the world and we will have this film showing in Toronto for one day!
The short film is called: “Mission Of Mermaids: a love letter to the ocean” by Susan Rockefeller and the Mission of Mermaids
“Mission of Mermaids is my love letter to the ocean and a plea for their protection.
Since I was a small child I have admired and loved the ocean; its mystery, ability to soothe and immense power. Mission of Mermaids explores the harsh realities of ocean acidification, overfishing and pollution through the eyes of the mythical and dreamlike mermaid. The film honors those who live from and for the seas and encourages us whether fisherman, activist or beach dreamer to protect our precious waters. It is my most personal film to date and reflects the love and respect that I have for our seas.”
~ Missions of Mermaids
This is also the day I will be launching my EBook and everyone will have the opportunity to buy it while enjoying this magical Ocean message!
