Julia Barnes


Julia Barnes is the award-winning filmmaker behind Sea of Life. For as long as she can remember Julia has been passionate about the natural world, but it wasn't until she was 16 that she realized the world she loved was in jeopardy. After watching Rob Stewart's documentary Revolution and learning that the world's coral reefs, rain forests and fisheries are expected to be gone by the middle of the century she was compelled to take action to protect the world she loved from human destruction. Film was the most powerful weapon she could imagine so at the age of 16, with no film experience, she picked up a video camera and set out to make a documentary to raise awareness about the biggest threats facing the planet and inspire audiences to turn things around. Sea of Life is a call to action for today's youth, presenting the challenges we face as an opportunity for young people to rise up and become the heroes the world needs.
