Planet Ocean is a plea sent to mankind to respect the world in which we live.
With breathtaking aerial images, directed by Yann Arthus-Bertrand, and the award-winning underwater camera team, the film takes its viewers on a journey, unique and beautiful, in the heart of the most misunderstood part of our planet.
Co-written by Michael Pitiot, together with a unique team of scientists, oceanographers and biologists, from several countries, the documentary shows the relationship between man and ocean, the future of the human race on Earth, the problem of governance of high seas, and the challenges ahead.
The film was followed by a Q&A with Yann Arthus-Bertrand.
