Private Project


A short film that shows the sea-life ecosystem and how it survives the different human interventions and the damaging ecological impact that it generates. It aims to develop a critical approach for children audiences, showing the contamination problems and some of the more common industrial disasters, such as oil spills, overfishing and eutrophication, problems that are treated in a tragic-comic way through the adventures of a very special orange fish.

Director Statement

"(...) "The doctrine" is, thus, as follows: the objects of perception are not "pure state" objects, nor private objects. They are the social objects "constructed" by our activites and that serves us in our reality in one way or another. Aesthetics have to be an exploration of analysis and protection of our environment.
