Out of the blue

A Short film by Sophie Ansel

Production year : 2017

  • Contents


Out of the Blue is an intimate journey exploring the rich legacy inherited by 8 year old Yerick, a child amongst a community of fishermen in Cabo Pulmo who became inadvertent conservationists when faced with the depletion of their marine resources. In an area once described by Jacques Cousteau as the ‘Aquarium of the World’, the fishermen families of Cabo Pulmo chose to sacrifice the source of their food and income in a revolutionary and dramatic decision: a fishing ban in their own waters in order to encourage marine life to return and find shelter. An astonishing rebirth followed, transforming the Cabo Pulmo Marine Park into a Hope Spot for the planet.
