Outdoor Movie: Planet Ocean | Sustainable Coastlines

Event Details

Dec 2013

On Saturday 14 December we invite you, your family and friends to attend a celebration as the finale to our huge Love your Coast Wellington project. Thousands of volunteers across the Wellington region are joining forces to look after our coasts during our five-week-long project; certainly an effort worth celebrating.

Please join us for special (and free) outdoor screening of dramatic award-winning film Planet Ocean at Waitangi Park on Wellington’s waterfront, starting once darkness falls at 8.30pm.

The celebration promises to be a treat for the whole family, with kids’ games, kite-making workshops and a gold-coin donation sausage sizzle at Waitangi Park from 1pm.

Planet Ocean is a 90 minute film directed by world-acclaimed photographer Yann Arthus-Bertrand and Michael Pitiot. This incredible cinema adventure brought along a unique pool of researchers, oceanographers and biologists, and with astonishing photography, this film takes us on a magnificent and unprecedented journey into the heart of the least known regions of our planet. The film narrates the most marvelous and also the most terrifying human experiences of our time. Filmed in extreme geographical conditions all over the globe, it describes the modern Odyssey of people who go out to discover their blue planet.
