Films that Matter: Chasing Coral

20/09/2019 at 12:30 pm - 2:00 pm


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, nail-biting suspense, and startling emotion, Chasing Coral is a dramatic revelation that won’t have audiences sitting idle for long. Sustainability advocate Sophia White will lead a discussion after the film.

Films that Matter Series:
This winter grab a seat at the WEA for some screenings of great films that look at important issues. You can pick the films that interest you or opt for a film pass and come along to all three screenings. Please note that you can come to the movie for free but the fee is a suggested donation to cover the costs and includes a seat at a post film discussion as well as hot chocolate, cookies and popcorn!
