I got to see this film yesterday at a community screening in American
Samoa, by the National Marine Sanctuary there. I have to say that this is
probably the best film I've seen about coral reefs, it is chock full of
good information that everybody can understand, has dazzling photography
including the first time lapse of coral growing I've ever seen and gorgeous
fluorescent corals in time lapse, plus a human interest story, and of
course makes the plight of corals being killed worldwide by bleaching in
hot water so clear, starting with dead coral boneyards in Florida, and
showing bleached corals dying in front of our eyes all over the world.
Very educational, gripping. An excellent film in all ways, I hope huge
numbers of people see it, spread the word. Free to have a community
screening anywhere in the world, I believe. If your community doesn't have
a screening, organize one!!!! You'll be glad you did.
