Profound Short Film About a 90 Year Old Balinese Fisherman Who Catches Plastic Instead of Fish

Voice Above Water Scooping Plastic Trash

“Voice Above Water” is a profound short film by Dana Frankoff that gives voice to a 90 year old Balinese man named Wayan who turned his lifelong profession of fishing into one of cleaning the river of plastic pollution so that future generations will once again be able to fish and provide for their families.

The story is a glimpse into how one human is using his resources to make a difference and a reminder that if we all play our part we can accomplish something much greater than ourselves.
