“The Beauty,” a strong and timely animated short by Swiss filmmaker Pascal Schelbli, imagines plastic waste turning into living creatures as soon as it reaches the water. Blowfish emerge from used bubble wrap, eels emerge from used tires, bottle-nosed dolphins emerge from water bottles, and jellyfish emerge from shopping bags. The video is accompanied by a gorgeous poem that emphasizes the argument.

What if plastic could be integrated into sea life? The Beauty is a poetic journey through the oceans, which are simultaneously stunning and filthy. Discover a world where concerns and fears dissolve into the mysterious depth of the polluted blue sea.
