Under the looming shadow of ecological breakdown, a young aspiring filmmaker goes in search of a surprising super-solution that can help build a better future for humans and the planet. Join her and the crew on an epic visual journey aboard the good ship Gleaner through Britain's rugged coastline, as they discover the power of Kelp to regenerate our coasts, empower communities and even replace plastics...

"KELP! is an amazing new film documenting the super powers of kelp. From wild kelp forest teeming with life to sustainable businesses harnessing the power of kelp, this inspiring documentary provides hope and inspiration as we tackle the climate and biodiversity crisis, and empower local coastal communities.”

"Beautiful but also educational.  I definitely felt a glimmer of hope in this very mad world."

"The most uplifting thing I've seen on screen in over 20 years."​​
