As the world’s coral reefs vanish at an unprecedented rate, a team of divers, photographers, and scientists race against time to preserve a sophisticated and vital part of our underwater ecosystem. This 2017 Sundance Audience Award winner captures on camera the vibrant life and tragic death of corals, presenting in epic scale our changing oceans and the urgent need to save them. (2017, dir. Jeff Orlowski, 93 min.)

A Q&A with director Jeff Orlowski and UCLA ecology professor Paul Barber follows.
