Storyline

"For Ed Ricketts" is a feature documentary which reveals the deep and profound impacts of marine biologist Ed "Doc" Ricketts' on author John Steinbeck, mythologist Joseph Campbell and on scientists around the world studying our oceans. Through his mentoring, his collaborations and his own ground-breaking works, Ricketts has helped to influence literature, science and philosophy for more than 80 years. Using filmed oral histories, archival footage, an extensive list of interviews this film explores the tidal effects of Ricketts' influences. We explore the real-time impact and importance of mentor-ship as we follow biologists, professors and scholars who are passing their torch to others on new expeditions that retrace Ricketts steps up and down the Pacific coast of North America; exploring his works and holistic ideas as they still resonate, influence and inspire scientists, artists, readers, thinkers, teachers, students and policy-makers across the globe.
