Touching, funny, relevant
3 June 2017 | by re_incarnateSee all my reviews

This is my first review on IMDb. I got a chance to see this film at Sundance London and it was so incredibly inspiring that I felt this film must be seen by people. Sadly this screening coincided with Trump pulling out of the Paris climate change deal, which makes this film even more important.

The director Jeff Orlowski and his crew embark on a quest to document and show the audience how quick and devastating the effects of global warming are on the coral reefs around the world.

The documentary has funny laugh-out-loud moments, takes us on an emotional journey where we see how deeply the filmmakers care for this subject, but most importantly it brings the message home - that things are changing and something needs to be done. A fantastic, motivating and hopeful film that is 100% relevant to the issues we face today, not to mention the stunning cinematography 10/10
