Bringing the Ocean to Society
28 Jul 2020
Discover MERAKi, an inspiring and reflective water journey
Experience ocean and marine wildlife protection in a new artistic way.

"MERAKi" is the first documentary from a new water series produced by Oceans and Flowan international community focused on the water and the aquatic movement that aim to set a good example when it comes to environmental practices and inspire international action and collaboration to preserve the oceans.

The documentary was filmed during a journey to Greece in 2018. In 2019, it won the award "Best Greek Documentary'"  at the YPERIA Film Festival, in Amorgos.

In Greek, "MERAKi" means doing something with all your soul, creativity and love. Create from the essence with passion in your heart. On this journey, we learned from the director of a Greek Sea Turtle Protection Organization, a local island herbalist, a spiritual artist and a diving instructor, how to develop their daily practise connecting with nature. Seeking balance in ever-changing worlds, we visit lessons from sea turtles, listen to the plant's guiding rhythms and travel immersed in the transformative power of dance.
