MISSION OF MERMAIDS (USA, 2012, 19 min.)
United States Premiere Both a poetic ode to the seas and aplea for their protection, Susan Cohn Rockefeller’s latest and most personal documentary focuses on the beauty and current plight of the world’s oceans. Using the archetype of the mermaid, a mythical creature evocative of the ocean’s enduring mystery, the film also honors the mermaid’s real life avatars, the mer women and men who live from and for the seas – artists, activists, performers, divers, fishermen and sailors – and all of us who have played and dreamed on beaches, reveled in ocean waters and nourished ourselves in her depths. Directed and produced by Susan Cohn Rockefeller.
Discussion with Carbon for Water filmmakers Evan Abramson and Carmen Elsa Lopez and Margot Stiles, Senior Scientist and Campaign Manager, Oceana, follows screenings.
