Description

Get Inspired with Chasing Coral

Lindsay and Christopher Lenard are joining the campaign to spread awareness and drive impact of coral bleaching by inviting people to watch an inspiring screening of Chasing Coral at the Bottom Lounge in Chicago with 200+ people and some really great sponsors & organizations (see below). Both recently scuba certified, we've found a deeper respect for our ocean and want to help in protecting it.

We want to share what the bleaching of our reefs reveals about our future and inspire others to act. Let's get together and find ways to take action that can help protect our reefs and secure a clean energy future.

Film Synopsis:

Chasing Coral taps into the collective will and wisdom of an ad man, a self-proclaimed coral nerd, top-notch camera designers, and renowned marine biologists as they invent the first time-lapse camera to record bleaching events as they happen. Unfortunately, the effort is anything but simple, and the team doggedly battles technical malfunctions and the force of nature in pursuit of their golden fleece: documenting the indisputable and tragic transformation below the waves. With its breathtaking photography, nail-biting suspense, and startling emotion, Chasing Coral is a dramatic revelation that won’t have audiences sitting idle for long.
