Filmmaker, creative director and international spokesperson Celine Cousteau has made her latest short documentary, 'Scars of Freedon' available for public viewing. The six-minute film is a powerful short story of the effect of human negligence on the ocean and its precious inhabitants.

Cousteau was working with a film crew in Chile on another project, a 12-part broadcast series of true stories of the ocean. Between dives, the crew heard a report from local fisherman of an entangled whale nearby. Cousteau says, "It was an incredible coincidence that we happened to be only 500 meters away." Despite being untrained for such a rescue mission, the team set off to help, and recorded the amazing footage that eventually became the emotive short film.

Produced by Céline Cousteau with support from the TreadRight Foundation, the short film is set off the coast of Chile’s Juan Fernandez Archipelago and tells a succinct, powerful tale of the effects of human negligence on the world’s oceans and the incredible power of human compassion.

After its debut at the Blue Ocean Film Festival, Scars of Freedom won the Animal Award at the Cinema Verde Film Festival, was an official selection at the Princeton Environmental Film Festival, Colorado Environmental Film Festival, Newport Beach Film Festival and San Francisco Green Film Festival. Scars of Freedom is currently finishing its 2013 tour with the Wild and Scenic Film Festival.
