Planet Ocean is a plea for humanity to respect the world in which we live in.
Thanks to its astonishing aerial photography signed by the award-winner photograph and director Yann Arthus-Bertrand, and award winners underwater cameramen, the film takes us on a magnificent and unprecedented journey into the heart of the least known regions of our planet.
Written also by Michael Pitiot, a unique pool of researchers, oceanographers and biologists from several countries, the film narrates the links between Man and ocean, the future of humankind on Earth, the governance issue of the high seas and challenges we will have to face tomorrow.
Supported by the TARA Foundation and in partnership with OMEGA, this film was presented to the leaders of the Earth Summit in Rio in June 2012 and was awarded Best Cinematography at Blue Ocean Film Festival.
