Chasing the Coral is an award-winning documentary directed by American director Jeff Orlowski. The documentary was released in the United States on July 14, 2017. IMDb gives it an 8.5 out of 10 ratings.
The film follows a group of drivers, scientists, and photographers from all over the world as they go on a global quest to document the destruction of coral reefs. This film explores the phenomena known as "coral bleaching."
Coral bleaching occurs when corals turn white as a result of climate change. Corals that go through this process are more likely to have stunted growth, lower reproductive potential, and be more susceptible to illness.
The documentary begins with the story of Richard Vevers, an advertising expert who resolves to utilize his knowledge and skills to aid with climate change action.
The entire film is eye-opening and encourages us to reconsider every time we do something that harms the environment.
"It is a rare movie that dares to explore the issue of how best to represent an idea," critics say.
