REACHING BLUE IS THE STORY OF A COASTAL WAY OF LIFE UNDER THREAT – WHERE HOPE IS FOUND IN STORIES OF OUR PAST WHILE FACING THE CHALLENGES OF THE FUTURE.
A writer, an oyster farmer and an ocean scientist on the coast of the Pacific Northwest expose new changes found in the Salish Sea, linking each of us to the world’s oceans. With twenty-two cinematographers contributing imagery from deep-sea submarines, ocean research vessels and drone cameras around our local waters, we catch a glimpse of a place as it has never been seen before. From John Steinbeck’s old research vessel the Western Flyer to residents of coastal communities facing dramatic changes in their own back yards, Reaching Blue shows that we are all connected to the ocean at our doorstep.
