"An endlessly fascinating quest" - Hollywood Reporter
Director Jeff Orlowski documented irrefutable visual proof of the melting ice caps in his 2012 film Chasing Ice. In Chasing Coral Orlowski returns with a team of divers, photographers and scientists to investigate why coral reefs are vanishing at an unprecedented rate.
Coral reefs are the nursery for all life in the oceans, a remarkable ecosystem that sustains the rest of the Earth. However, with carbon emissions warming the seas, scientists have seen an alarming increase in “coral bleaching”, a sign of mass coral death.
Orlowski joins forces with his passionate collaborators to figure out a way to capture the effects of climate change on the coral and they embark on a race against time to record bleaching events to show the world the devastation that is silently raging underwater.
The film plays daily from Friday 14th July, further screenings will be added soon.
