Angel Azul (directed by Marcy Cravat) explores the artistic journey of Jason deCaires Taylor, an innovative artist who creates artificial coral reefs underwater from life-like statues that he has cast. The documentary showcases experts who provide the facts about the perilous situation coral reefs currently face and the solutions necessary to save them. And we meet Taylor, the artist who is determined to use his creativity to help solve the developing underwater crises caused by the disappearing reefs. As the film unfolds, not only do we witness the birth of the artist’s creations, we also learn how we are inextricably connected to the ocean and everything in it. Peter Coyote generously provides the film’s insightful narration, leaving viewers pondering our connection to this valuable and beautiful ecosystem, and considering how our choices will determine what we pass on to future generations.
