Director: Jeff Orlowski. 93 min. Documentary.
Another climate change documentary? That's the thought you start out with - especially after Chasing Ice (the film that motivated the main players here to seek cinematic documentation) was overshadowed by the shock of An Inconvenient Truth. But be patient, and you'll find the a-picture-is-worth-a-thousand-words message of Chasing Coral disturbing, heartbreaking, and revolting, as researchers show through simple but arduous underwater photography how coral reefs (upstream food source for 500,000 people around the world) are rapidly dying. This might become the first time you'll cry for a plant. And to think some narcissistic idiot recently pulled out of the Paris Accords ...
PS: It's by the same director of Chasing Ice. Expecting a third "Chasing" movie to complete a trilogy.
