Films and documentaries about our relationship to the open sea and other big bodies of water, and what they mean for us. Hopes, fears, livelihoods and deaths.
This list is ongoing because quite frankly some of these films are only superficially set at sea or by water, and I would like each selection to have value in the human-water relationship. So that means trashy direct-to-DVD shark attack movies, thrillers about Jessica Alba being kidnapped and Tom-Hanks-survives-alone stories are not included.
