Join us for a deep-dive into My Octopus Teacher, the story of a unique relationship between a diver and a charismatic octopus, set in the spectacular under-sea world off the tip of South Africa.

Currently in the running for both an Oscar and a BAFTA, My Octopus Teacher follows filmmaker and naturalist Craig Foster over the course of a year spent freediving in a kelp forest in Cape Town, closely observing and developing a relationship with an octopus. 

Co-directors Pippa Ehrlich and James Reed will join us to discuss making the film, underwater cinematography, marine conservation and extraordinary sea creatures. Hosted by journalist and programmer Carol Nahra.

Watch My Octopus Teacher on Netflix in your own time and join us for the Q&A on Tuesday 6th April, 6pm BST.
