Rialto Movie Of The Week: Deep Blue
RIALTO MOVIE OF THE WEEK
What "Microcosmos" did for creepy crawlies and "Travelling Birds" did for our feathered friends, "Deep Blue" does for ocean dwellers. From the same team that created David Attenborough's series "The Blue Planet," "Deep Blue" was shot on a $5 million budget over three years across an enormous range of locations including The Maldives, South Africa, Galapagos, Russia, Canada, USA, Mexico, Antarctica, Bahamas, Belize, Brazil, French Polynesia, Papua New Guinea, Norway, Spain, Japan, New Zealand and Australia.
The oceans are the last frontier of our planet, and this is the definitive exploration of that frontier. It plunges into the spectacle of the seas and begins on a journey from the shallowest coral reefs to the barren shores of the Antarctic, from the vast stretches of the open oceans to the nocturnal landscapes of the ocean's deepest chasms at 16,500 feet. With more known about the surface of the moon than the ocean floor, "Deep Blue" offers never-before-seen images of breathtaking beauty and wonder.
