“Perhaps one of the most seemingly alien things to humans, aside from the mysterious depths of space, is the spellbinding enchantments of the ocean–right here on Earth. There is so much to be explored, understood, and observed for the first time. As Craig Foster discovers in this life-changing documentary, there is a great likelihood of encountering something entirely new every time you explore it, the underwater vastness and variety are screaming for scientific discoveries.
Co-directed by James Reed, this meditative documentary stars Craig Foster (also the narrator) who spends every single day for a year boldly free diving in the chilly waters near Cape Town (with no wet-suit or scuba gear) to spend time with an octopus. After quitting her job to work on the documentary, co-director and editor Pippa Ehrlich masters her first feature-length film with a fervent passion to spread their knowledge.
