Description

Films Changing the World: Must-see docs revealing staggering new perspectives and stories.

Join us for this special (and vital) discussion and one-off return of Chasing Coral, which made waves at this year's Hot Docs festival. In this high-stakes follow-up to the hit documentary Chasing Ice, director Jeff Orlowski joins up with a team of marine biologists to dive into the world of coral reefs, armed with state-of-the-art cameras. Mass bleaching events that leave populations of coral reef devastated and ecosystems completely disrupted are increasing with the rise of of water temperatures—but it’s not too late to save them. Join Orlowski and his team on their globe-spanning adventure to help save our oceans.

Associate professor Julia Baum from the University of Victoria, Department of Biology will participate in a post-screening Skype Q&A.

Co-presented by Planet in Focus and Water Docs.
