Netflix releases trailer for Seaspiracy documentary
Film executive produced by Ecotricity’s Dale Vince launches 24 March
Netflix has released the first trailer for Seaspiracy, the long-awaited follow-up to the Cowspiracy documentary, which hits the streaming service worldwide on Wednesday, 24 March.
The Netflix Original documentary focuses on the harm humans do to marine species and follows film maker Kip Andersen and his assistants Ali and Lucy Tabrizi as they uncover an alarming global conspiracy that links many of the issues currently contributing to oceanic destruction.
Our Founder, Dale Vince met Kip Andersen in 2016 and offered funding that allowed filming to begin. The finished documentary was acquired by Netflix late last year – for its high-profile Netflix Original line.
Dale Vince, Executive Producer, Seaspiracy said:
“The destruction of marine life is a major environment issue which we’ve been focussed on for many years - so when Kip told us he was looking to make a follow-up to Cowspiracy - an ocean version, we were keen to help make it happen. Five years on, this incredible film exposes the full scale of our assault on life in our oceans.
With Netflix on board – Seaspiracy will be seen by an audience of millions around the world, and once you see stuff like this, the natural step to take is to stop being part of it. We need to stop eating fish, stop using them to feed cows and generally stop the destruction of our oceans. I think this film will rally people to this cause - information is always the first step to fixing a problem.”
Dale will join the film makers behind Seaspiracy and special guests for a Facebook Live event later in March.
