La Mer is the new Victor Claramunt fashion film. “I am smart enough to know that. This is the essential premise that kids tell us. We are destroying the seas and we do nothing to change that. From the world of fashion we must also make the audience aware that we should do everything in our power to change the course of history. Fashion as a social speaker. Kids as social speakers. We need all world attention.” www.victorclaramunt.com
We live in a society where we are not aware of the amount of plastic around us. This is not a child’s play. Four children, from 11 to 6 years old, in recognizable two-color environments, where the plastic that coexists naturally with us stands out,nobody cares. The kids will tell us what we are doing with our oceans … with our planet.
Since I was a child, I liked to play in every room of the house. I hung different objects from any part of the room that seemed that they could always have been there. This was the first image that came to mind when I thought about this film. Mixing style and social denunciation without losing the sense of humor to raise awareness of the dangers of plastics in the oceans was not a simple task. I believe that any narrative is good to achieve a goal. This is not a children’s game, we do everything possible to save the planet.
