Garden in the Sea
Garden in the Sea was my second film from the Hot Docs festival today. The movie is about the installation of an underground sculpture by SPanish artist Cristina Iglesias in a new marine reserve off the coast of Baha California. The huge concrete structure will provide a fish habitat similar to that provided by coral. This is an interesting attribute, given the disappearance of half of the ocean's coral. The scenery in the movie was absoluting breathtaking, but for my taste, the movie moved too slowly.
