CHASING CORAL
2017, Netflix, 93 min, United States, Dir: Jeff Orlowski

Coral reefs are the nursery for all life in the oceans, a remarkable ecosystem that sustains us. Yet with carbon emissions warming the seas, a phenomenon called “coral bleaching” - a sign of mass coral death - has been accelerating around the world. This new documentary from filmmaker Jeff Orlowski (CHASING ICE) taps into the collective will and wisdom of an ad man, a self-proclaimed coral nerd, top-notch camera designers and renowned marine biologists as they invent the first time-lapse camera to record bleaching events as they happen. With its breathtaking photography, nail-biting suspense and startling emotion, CHASING CORAL offers a dramatic look at the troubling transformation below the waves.
