Chasing Coral

Event Date: 
October 13, 2017 - 7:00pm - 9:00pm

Coral reefs are the nursery for all life in the oceans, a remarkable ecosystem that sustains us. Yet with carbon emissions warming the seas, a phenomenon called "coral bleaching"-a sign of mass coral death-has been accelerating around the world, and the public has no idea of the scale or implication of the catastrophe silently raging underwater. 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 and startling emotional sense of emergency, Chasing Coral is a dramatic revelation that is sure to move audiences to alarm and action. The film screening will be followed by a discussion with Mark Eakin, a Chief Scientific Advisor to the film. Please join us for this Climate Stewards of Greater Annapolis Movie Night.
