Discussion with: Marcy Cravat, director.

A beautiful film exploring the artistic journey of Jason deCaires Taylor, an innovative artist who combines creativity with an important environmental solution; the creation of artificial coral reefs from statues he's cast from live models. His latest creation is MUSA (Museo Subacuatico de Arte), a monumental museum with a collection of over 500 of his sculptural works, submerged off the coast of Cancun, Mexico. When algae overtakes the reefs however, experts provide the facts about the perilous situation coral reefs currently face and solutions necessary to save them. Bay Area filmmaker, Marcy Cravat, brings us haunting and beautiful images of the underwater statues, to remind us all of the impact we are having on our oceans. Peter Coyote provides insightful narration that leaves viewers pondering our connection to this valuable and beautiful ecosystem.
