“This is not a place for men, but a place to be studied, documented, protected.” The Antarctic is melting, and with it the time left to protect the still largely untouched habitat and its biodiversity, before it is too late. Star actors Javier and Carlos Bardem get involved and embark on an ambitious project, together with numerous scientists, to work towards the establishment of the world’s largest marine protected area in the Weddel Sea. The documentary SANCTUARY accompanies the group on their journey to these unique shallows of the sea. Between colourful corals and cathedrals made of ice, we learn how science can put pressure on politicians, and how each and every one of us can make a difference.
