Fighting for the planet doesn’t have to be so serious. Just ask Hot Pink Dolphins, a group of marine life–loving activists using color, quirkiness and humor to spread the message that a threat to dolphins is a threat to us. The Patagonia Films’ documentary short follows three members of the grassroots organization as they work to return captive dolphins to the wild and create a marine protected area in Jeju Island, South Korea. Their signature hot pink jumpsuits give them the courage to fight against habitat-destroying development projects, overtourism and naval bases that threaten this critical species. Blending K-pop tunes, punk rock aesthetics and grunge design, Hot Pink Dolphins reminds us that the most powerful environmental movements come from the heart.
