A Short Film About a 90-Year-Old Fisherman Who Catches Plastic Instead of Fish

by Matthew Gilligan

Plastic pollution is a major problem all over the globe and a 90-year-old man from Bali has taken it upon himself to make a difference.

The short film Voice Above Water documents how the man, Wayan Nyo, turned his attention from fishing to cleaning up plastic in the sea because the plastic pollution was so overwhelming that he could no longer fish.

The introduction to director Dana Frankoff’s film says that if things don’t change, there will be more plastic in the ocean than there are fish by 2050. It’s a scary thought…

Watch the entire 12-minute short film above to get the entire story of this man’s important work.
