THE LEGACY | Mexico, 5min
(Filmmaker – Erick Higuera)
The Legacy takes us to a remote archipelago in Mexico, where words like ‘abundance,’ ‘thriving,’ and ‘perfect and healthy populations’ are still being used to describe the marine environment.
A spell-binding setting where even the majestic Giant Pacific Mantaray can flourish, the Revillagigedo Islands are evidence that the ocean’s biodiversity, and our hope, is not yet lost.

FOUR MUMS IN A BOAT | UK, 30min
(Filmmaker – Bow River Films)
When four British middle-aged working mums announced that they wanted to row the Atlantic Ocean, their families thought they had lost their minds: With an average age of 47 between them, they had two children each, and no ocean rowing experience.
Three years later they were lining up alongside some of the world’s strongest ocean adventurers at the start of the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge. Considered one of the toughest ocean endurance challenges on the planet, the odds were stacked against the mums from the start. This is the story of four ordinary women who dared to dream of becoming world record breakers as the oldest women ever to row an ocean. Four Mums in a Boat is a journey of determination, possibility and personal discovery.

To some, the ocean is a fearsome and dangerous place. But to others, it’s a limitless world of fun, freedom and opportunity where life can be lived to the full. A new documentary presented by Patagonia and directed by Keith Malloy, FISH PEOPLE 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, it’s a film about the transformative effects of time spent in the ocean—and how we can leave our limitations behind to find deeper meaning in the saltwater wilderness that lies just beyond the shore.
