Volunteers work tirelessly to rescue Europe’s marine life from pollution and violent weather fuelled by climate change in this poetic documentary. Berlinale 2021.
Across Europe's seas marine life is under pressure from pollution and violent weather fuelled by climate change. Winter is approaching and severe storms are forecast. Volunteers work around the clock to rescue exhausted and injured seals, dolphins and other coastal wildlife. The animals gaze at their rescuers with fear and trepidation, inching away from helping hands, as they undergo rehabilitation. In poetic images, From the Wild Sea captures this troubling scenario, a collision between society and the environment. Robin Petré's debut documentary premiered in the 2021 Berlinale.

Robin Petré holds an MA in Documentary Film Directing from Doc Nomads, the European travelling documentary film school. Her short films, focussing on the co-existence of humans with nature, have screened at numerous festivals and won several awards.

Shortlisted for the Sustainable Future Award
A fascinating, disturbing journey.
