Angel Azul

Win­ner of Best Cin­e­matog­ra­phy at 2014 Bel-Air Film Fes­ti­val, Best Doc­u­men­tary at 2014 Breck­in­ridge Film Fes­ti­val and Best Doc­u­men­tary & Grand Jury Best Film at 2015 Julien Dubuque Inter­na­tion­al Film Fes­ti­val

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.
