Plastic pollution is a serious issue, with 8 million tons of plastic entering the ocean every year. Discarded bottles, bags, and other rubbish may be found everywhere in the globe, affecting animal and human environments.

In her short documentary Voice Above Water, Dana Frankoff shows how plastic pollution affects people’s lives. The film follows a 90-year-old Balinese fisherman named Wayan Nyo who can no longer fish off the island’s coastlines due to the water’s abundance of plastic debris.

Dana Frankoff, an American filmmaker, made a short documentary called Voice Above Water about a 90-year-old Balinese fisherman.

Wayan remembered his days as a youth spearfishing and capturing fish too large to fit in his little boat. Unfortunately, fishermen can no longer capture these large fish because plastic pollution has chased them away.

The guy decided to load all of the plastic on his boat and carry it to the beach since he was tired of being stuck in his net. Wayan met someone from Java one day who volunteered to recycle all of the plastic debris he had taken from the water.
