Movie Info

Volcanoes of the Deep Sea

VOLCANOES OF THE DEEP SEA is a giant screen science adventure that will plunge audiences into the ocean 12,000 feet deep for an unprecedented experience of this vast and little-explored dimension of our planet. The film follows a team of scientists as they dive to research mysterious hydrothermal vents on the mid-ocean ridge. As the dive unfolds, the film and the scientists reveal for us the fantastic diversity of the deep: its strange communities of organisms, its shipwreck gardens, bioluminescent creatures and awesome giant predators. An astounding 97% of the Earth's biosphere is located here, in the dark regions of the ocean that we have truly just begun to penetrate and explore.

VOLCANOES OF THE DEEP SEA reveals the planet's marine depths as never before, putting audiences into the most alien and hostile environments on Earth and into contact with the planet's strangest creatures and phenomena. The film will also explore the implications that deep ocean discoveries may have for our understanding of the emergence of life and our search for its traces elsewhere in the Cosmos.
