The Ocean Film Fes­ti­val Aus­tralia show­cases more than two hours of sub­lime footage taken above and be­low the wa­ter’s sur­face. The films doc­u­ment the beauty and power of the ocean, and cel­e­brate the divers, surfers, sailors, row­ers, swim­mers and oceanog­ra­phers who live for the sea’s salt spray; who chase the crests of waves; and who mar­vel at the mys­ter­ies of the big blue. Jour­ney from New Zealand to Patag­o­nia via Antarc­tica with a rag­tag crew of sailors, probe a for­eign world where man is no longer the dom­i­nant force, track the sur­vival of hump­back whales in New Zealand with some salty old seadogs and bat­tle the tem­per­a­men­tal North At­lantic winds to surf the frigid shores of Ice­land.
