“Our oceans are dramatically changing and we are losing coral reefs on a global scale,” said Jeff Orlowski, director of Chasing Coral.
“We spent three years with divers, underwater photographers, and experts to reveal the majesty of our oceans, and the rapidly changing reality we’re facing. We are excited to launch this trailer on World Oceans Day and help heighten awareness of the connection between humanity and our ocean.”

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.
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.
