Chasing Coral — Trailer


added: Thu, Jun 8th '17

Netflix has released the trailer for the Sundance-winning documentary "Chasing Coral," which is directed by "Chasing Ice" documentarian Jeff Orlowski.

Exploring the environmental issues regarding rising sea temperatures and how it relates to the current deteriorating state of coral reefs, the film follows a team of activists and marine biologists as they document the recent ocean changes around the world with state-of-the-art time-lapse cameras.

Winner of the Audience Award at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival where it drew strong praise from critics, "Chasing Coral" is now due to premiere on Netflix next month, beginning Friday, July 14th.

Chasing Coral taps into the collective will and wisdom of an ad man, a self-proclaimed coral nerd, top-notch camera designers, and renowned marine biologists as they invent the first time-lapse camera to record bleaching events as they happen. Unfortunately, the effort is anything but simple, and the team doggedly battles technical malfunctions and the force of nature in pursuit of their golden fleece: documenting the indisputable and tragic transformation below the waves. With its breathtaking photography, nail-biting suspense, and startling emotion, Chasing Coral is a dramatic revelation that won’t have audiences sitting idle for long.
