More and more attention is being given to the fact that coral reefs around the world are vanishing at an unprecedented rate.
A team of divers, photographers and scientists set out on an ocean adventure to examine the evidence of how global warming is destroying these breathtaking reefs, and while doing their filming, invented the first time-lapse camera that could record the destructive coral bleaching events as they occur.
Filmed over three years, with more than 650 hours of the time spent underwater, the documentary includes footage from over 30 countries, and was made with the support of over 500 people around the world.
This is the second documentary centered on the effects of climate change for filmmaker Orlowski, whose previous film, produced in 2012, was Chasing Ice.
Released in 2017
