Julieta & the Turtles in the Plastic Soup
14-year-old Julieta lives on the Caribbean island of Curaçao and prefers to be under water rather than above. The wonderful, exciting world of the ocean feels like home to Julieta. The more time Julieta spends under water, the more she is confronted with large amounts of waste on the seabed and that makes her extremely mad. Together with other volunteers on Curaçao, Julieta rescues sea turtles in need and tries to improve their habitat. Her actions sometimes only feel like a drop in the ocean for Julieta. Staying positive and believing that you can create a better world and future is a difficult task. National Audience Award – Cinekid Festival 2021.
