MOM screened on March 16 at the Hong Kong/San Francisco Ocean Film Festival. Screenings on the beach! What could be more dreamy and more appropriate? We have some wonderful photos and feedback from the audience, that we’d like to share.
Firstly, from our friend Frances Kennedy:
The Mermaid’s mission succeeded in so many ways for your viewers this afternoon:
The photography is beautiful, so we were drawn into caring about the ocean;
The photography was effective in conveying the tragic consequences of human actions: the horrible plastic floating in the sea.
The structure of the film, beginning with you and ending with you and your children, engaged us.
The interviews educated us, particularly Sylvia Earle.
And your statement was a fine complement to your film.
The auditorium was full and the audience responded with great applause. The woman sitting next to me, burst out: “Wasn’t it great!”
You are doing important work for our planet. Thank you!
And here are some wonderful photos:
