THE GREAT OUTDOORS
GERMANY 2019, 97 min Director RALF WUERTH
Following a chance meeting with legendary ocean activist and Greenpeace co-founder Paul Watson, charismatic New York City brand and product developer Cyrill Gutsch has an awakening that turns his life upside-down and starts an eco-revolution. This serendipitous encounter leads Gutsch to found Parley for the Oceans, an organization where creators, thinkers, and leaders from various backgrounds—art, film, music, fashion, and technology—come together to raise awareness for the beauty and fragility of our oceans. Through Parley, Gutsch partners with businesses like ADIDAS to turn the ocean’s plastic debris into fashion and running shoes. Featuring stunning underwater cinematography and enlightening conversations with Watson and oceanographer Sylvia Earle, Swarm Intelligence proposes an outside-of-the-box approach to environmentalism that can help preserve our oceans before it’s too late.
After 20 years in television with more than 200 episodes in factual TV series for national and international networks, RALF WUERTH leaves the media world in 2009 to continue under an alias as artist, curator, and museum founder. From 2012 to 2019, he is also involved in a fly-on-the-wall observation for his first independent feature length documentary Swarm Intelligence.
