Coral reefs are the nursery for all life in the oceans, a remarkable ecosystem that sustains us.

Yet with carbon emissions warming the seas, a phenomenon called “coral bleaching”—a sign of

mass coral death—has been accelerating around the world, and the public has no idea of the

scale or implication of the catastrophe silently raging underwater.

Enter Jeff Orlowski, director of Chasing Ice, which created irrefutable, visual proof of the melting

ice caps. Orlowski’s next project is similarly evidentiary and powerful. 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.
