My Octopus Teacher
An Oscar worthy, spectacular documentary. You will love it.
Directed by Pippa Ehrlich and James Reed, Craig Foster is filmed over the course of a year developing a relationship with an octopus as he skin dives in a kelp forest off a coast in South Africa. An unexpected friendship develops that will capture your heart.
This is a story about life under the sea. The octopus’ daily adventure involves roaming to hunt fish and crabs as she dodges sharks trying to devour her.
In the process she ends up occasionally resting on Mr. Foster’s chest and your emotional reaction will match his. These animals only live for about a year, so be prepared for a film that will in a small way define the meaning of life.
