By Yann Arthus-Bertrand and Michael Pitiot
Planet Ocean takes us on an amazing journey over the entire planet via spectacular new aerial and underwater imagery. The film first dives into the secrets of the ocean – source of life, evolution of species, migration, predation – exploring exuberant coral reefs and mysteries of the abyss. Then everything changes: man appears and takes over the Planet Ocean. He invents fishing, conquers the seas, discovers oil and globalizes the world. Nothing will ever be the same. The film’s narration explores man’s vulnerability and the effects of our lifestyle on the oceans that sustain us. The humanistic vision of Yann Arthus-Bertrand and Michael Pitiot invites us to preserve the world’s oceans and commit ourselves to respecting life and its beauty.
Tara Expeditions shared with the filmmakers our network of scientists and the information they accumulated during the expeditions.
