“We don’t have any time to waste.” That’s the message from Chasing Coral, Netflix’s powerful new documentary.
The film, which was snapped up at Sundance earlier this year, is director Jeff Orlowski’s follow-up to the Oscar-nominated Chasing Ice, which captured the melting of glaciers in the Arctic due to global warming. Chasing Coral does the same, but for the coral reefs dying on a massive scale, unseen beneath the waves of our oceans.
Orlowski follows a team of scientists and filmmakers as they try to prove to the world the severity of what’s happening.
“Orlowski is one of the best filmmakers in the world at capturing the scary rate of decline in our natural world,” we wrote in our review of the movie, which premiered in the UK at Sundance London. “And the answer is not just in his astonishing, accomplished camerawork, but in his ability to find a human story to match the statistical horrors. Pictures are one thing, but Orlowski feels the screen with people too, giving us double the reason to care about what we’re seeing.”
A powerful, urgent, inspiring call to wake up to climate change, Chasing Coral premieres on Netflix on Friday 14th July. Here’s a trailer:
