The film Revolution picks up from where Rob Stewart’s Sharkwater tour ends. Sharkwater, a film about saving the sharks, was successful in raising awareness within the conservation movement and prompted shark fin bans and the creation of dozens of conservation groups around the globe. A student at a Hong Kong screening of Sharkwater asked Stewart why save the sharks when we are really facing something much bigger – we’re on the verge of losing the oceans the sharks live in. Stewart’s focus is now on saving people. The title of his most recent book is Save the Humans.
Revolution is a film about changing the world. It’s no longer about saving the oceans, it’s about saving ourselves.
In an effort to uncover the truth and find the secret to saving the ecosystems we depend on for survival, Stewart embarks on a life-threatening adventure. From the coral reefs in Papua New Guinea and deforestation in Madagascar to the largest and most destructive environmental project in history in Alberta, Canada, he reveals that all of our actions are interconnected and that environmental degradation, species loss, ocean acidification, pollution and food/water scarcity are reducing the Earth’s ability to house humans. How did this happen, and what will it take to change the course that humanity has set itself on?
Travelling the globe to meet with the dedicated individuals and organizations working on a solution, Stewart finds encouragement and hope, pointing to the revolutions of the past and how we’ve evolved and changed our course in times of necessity. If people were informed about what was really going on, they would fight for their future — and the future of other generations. From the evolution of our species to the revolution to save it, Stewart and his team take viewers on a groundbreaking mission into the greatest war ever waged.
