FISHPEOPLE

(2017  Documentary  48 min.)

A Film About Lives Transformed by the Sea

To some, the ocean is a fearsome and dangerous place. But to others, its a limitless world of fun, freedom and opportunity where life can be lived to the full. This short film, presented by Patagonia and directed by Keith Malloy, tells the stories of a unique cast of characters who have dedicated their lives to the sea. From surfers and spearfishers to a former coal miner and a group of at-risk kids in San Francisco, its a film about the transformative effects of time spent in the oceanand how we can leave our limitations behind to find deeper meaning in the saltwater wilderness that lies just beyond the shore.

THE SMOG OF THE SEA

(2017  Documentary  30 min.)

The Smog of the Sea chronicles a 1-week journey through the remote waters of the Sargasso Sea. Marine scientist Marcus Eriksen invited onboard an unusual crew to help him study the sea: renowned surfers Keith & Dan Malloy, musician Jack Johnson, spearfisher woman Kimi Werner, and bodysurfer Mark Cunningham become citizen scientists on a mission to assess the fate of plastics in the worlds oceans.

After years of hearing about the famous garbage patches in the oceans gyres, the crew is stunned to learn that the patches are a myth: the waters stretching to the horizon are clear blue, with no islands of trash in sight. But as the crew sieves the water and sorts through their haul, a more disturbing reality sets in: a fog of microplastics permeates the worlds oceans, trillions of nearly invisible plastic shards making their way up the marine food chain. You can clean up a garbage patch, but how do you stop a fog?

Using nostalgic super-8 footage, sparkling underwater cinematography, an original score by Jack Johnson and shipmate Simon Beins, and live action footage of the crews research, The Smog of the Sea provides a new perspective on the once pristine oceans, and makes an artful call to action for rethinking the scourge of the sea  single use plastic. Directed by Peabody Award-winning and Emmy-nominated filmmaker Ian Cheney (King Corn, The City Dark, The Search for General Tso).
