In the framework of Abu Dhabi Sustainability Week, Institut français presents “Planet Ocean”, a brillant documentary directed by Yann Arthus-Bertrand and Michael Pitiot.

Thanks to its astonishing aerial photography filmed by Yann Arthus-Bertrand, and award winning underwater cameramen, the film takes us on a magnificent and unprecedented journey into the heart of the least known regions of our planet.

Written also by Michael Pitiot, in collaboration with Tara Expéditions, a unique pool of researchers, oceanographers and biologists from several countries, the film narrates the links between man and ocean, the future of humankind on Earth, the governance issue of the high seas and challenges we’ll have to face tomorrow.
