IMAGINE A WORLD WITHOUT FISH. It seems inconceivable, but top scientists warn that such a catastrophe may in fact play out in coming generations unless widespread awareness is raised to stop
ocean acidification. A Sea Change focuses public attention on this urgent but little-know crisis.
A Sea Change is the first documentary about ocean acidification, directed by Barbara Ettinger and co-produced by Sven Huseby.

Chock full of scientific information, the feature-length film is also a beautiful paean to the ocean world and an intimate story of a Norwegian-American family whose heritage is bound up with the sea. The film debuted in March 2009 to a record-breaking, standing room-only audience at the Smithsonian Museum, which then gave it a standing ovation. Since then the film has screened at festivals in North America, Europe, and Latin America, garnering multiple awards.
