Threats in the Northern Seas

Director: Jacques Loeuille
Country of Origin: France
2018

About three billions tons of chemical and conventionnal warfare lay in the bottom of the North and Baltic sea. These silent witnesses of both World Wars have become a true treat for the environment. How and why were these weapons dumped in the sea and is this massive propagation of highly toxic products inevitable?​

The Director takes us to Bornholm (Germany), to the Skarregak Straight (between Finland and Denmark), to the French North sea and Channel coasts, to the South of England, to Knokke Heist (Belgium), The Netherlands and Denmark. He dives to witness, bring testimony and defend the cause of our seas’s survival.
