Embrace the Ocean tells stories about marine culture, ecology and environmental conservation, with

images from the Northeastern coast as its theme, and with humans, incidents, history, location and things

as its background.


This documentary can be divided into two parts. The first half is about marine culture, introducing us to some veteran diving fisherwomen and fishermen in their 60s to 80s collecting agar,

and two elementary schools working for marine education and holding a diving graduation ceremony

annually for their kids to challenge themselves and be closer to the ocean. And the second half is about

some coastal rock face near Cape Longdong waiting to be registered as a world geological park, a 90-

year-old doctor still in practice in one of these remote towns, and the rise and fall of the Taiwanese

abalone aquaculture along the Northeastern coast.


Director’s Statement:

Taiwan is surrounded by the ocean. We’re indeed a “nation of ocean”. What a blessing! In order to

share the beautiful resources forever, we should promote the marine education, reduce the

human damages, and link the ocean to our daily lives, worshipping gods, protecting lands and

loving people with a marine cultural thinking. The ocean nourishes the sky. The sky nourishes the

land. And the land nourishes the whole creation. Let us respect Nature, coexist with all living

things, and plan for a sustainable future.
