Coral Sea Dreaming enters into the very heart of life - and death - on a coral reef. It is a story that spans 500 million years and stars some of the most exotic and wonderous marine creatures on earth. Coral is the planet’s greatest natu- ral architect, and coral reefs boast the highest biodiversity of any ecosystem.
Filmed over a 7 year period, Emmy Award-winning cinematographer David Hannan gives a magnificent testimony to our extraordinary undersea world, set to an original score by Tania Rose. We meet thousands of reef inhabitants, from ancient turtles to feeding sharks; adorable pygmy seahorses and savage sea slugs; and witness a manta ray ballet and a courting octopus. Specialised state of the art high definition technology captures these lives with unprecendented intimacy, illustrating elaborate courtship displays, mating rituals, feeding frenzies, intense night-time predation, cannibalism and chemical warfare.
Many of the sequences have never been filmed before. Some may never be filmed again. Corals have survived 5 mass extinctions. But can they survive us?
