A Mary Kay Inc. executive produced documentary has been selected to premiere at the all-digital LA Femme International Film Festival October 15–18.
Guardians of the Gulf is a documentary that explores the tumultuous relationship between the Gulf of Mexico and the conservationists determined to protect it. Mary Kay Inc., serving as executive producer, with Media One in partnership with The Nature Conservancy, visited the coasts of Texas, Alabama and Mexico to shed light on the often-untold stories of Gulf preservation.
Filmed, directed and produced by an all-female crew, Guardians of the Gulf is slated for its global digital premiere on Friday, October 16, 5:00 p.m. PST, with a Q&A including filmmakers and stars to immediately follow.
Guardians of the Gulf Synopsis:
The Gulf of Mexico has long been impacted by catastrophic natural disasters like hurricanes, overfishing, agricultural run-off and oil spills. However, it continues to support one of the most biodiverse ecosystems on Earth with over 15,000 species. This resilience is tenuous. Like any relationship, only so much can be taken without giving back.
In Guardians of the Gulf, the Gulf of Mexico is given a voice by her caretakers to tell a story of generosity and strength. These conservationists, fisher people, tour operators, chefs and student leaders strive to improve sustainability in their work and community. Through action, they see change. Through change, they see hope.
