Planet Ocean:
Can we imagine a film that would change the way people look at the ocean? Can we explain simply, to everyone, the greatest natural mystery of our planet? Can we help our children believe in a better and more sustainable world tomorrow?

This is the triple challenge of a new cinema adventure signed by Yann Arthus-Bertrand and editor- in-chief Michael Pitiot, who bring with them the scientific missions of TARA, a unique pool of researchers, oceanographers and biologists from several countries. Thanks to astonishing photography, the film takes us on a magnificent and unprecedented journey into the heart of the least known regions of our planet.

The film narrates the most marvelous and also the most terrifying human experiences of our time. Filmed in extreme geographical conditions all over the globe, it describes the modern Odyssey of people who go out to discover their blue planet.

As a part of the Catlin Seaview Survey we visited the Cod Hole, a world famous dive site found on the Ribbon Reef chain. We dived with 10 large and curious Potato Cod on this day in October, the animals loved looking at their own image in the reflections from our camera lenses.
