In the documentary film Sea Blind, filmmaker Sarah Robertson and  climate journalist Bernice Notenboom explore the environmental impact of the shipping industry in the northern hemisphere. Up to forty percent of Arctic melting may be slowed by taking action against black carbon emissions, half of which comes from ships. Experts agree, this is one of our best chances to slow Greenland ice melt and gives us time to prepare for our new warming world. Sea Blind offers a fascinating, little known narrative while presenting heartening solutions. Ultimately, the film is a cure for Sea Blindness, enabling each of us to become more conscious consumers and more engaged citizens in today's changing world.
