THE DEPTHS OF NINGALOO, 12min., Australia, Documentary

Directed by Logan Mock-Bunting, Carlie Wiener

In March 2020, a team of ocean scientists set out to observe, document, and characterize the deep-sea biodiversity in the Cape Range and Ningaloo Canyons – a region off of Western Australia, where almost no exploration had taken place. This documentary was filmed entirely at sea, as Schmidt Ocean Institute’s research vessel Falkor – along with their underwater robot, Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV) SuBastian – collected beautiful visual surveys and sampling of the environment, providing important evidence for the unique life forms and geologic structures of this little-studied region. The remote Western Australian coast is well known for its immense diversity of evolutionary significant fauna, but this celebrated area remained nearly unexplored until this first-of-its-kind expedition.

SIYAYA – COME WILD WITH US. AFRICA: TALES FROM THE EDGE, 26min., South Africa, Documentary
Directed by François Odendaal

Taking a break from the bush the team
watches a large Cape Fur Seal steal Uish
from the market in Kalk Bay. Trash Uloating
in the harbour water is a sad reminder
that plastics in the ocean threatens marine
life across the globe. They Uind out how the
Southern Right Whale was brought back
from the brink of extinction. Continuing
northwards they spot a herd of Bontebok
and learn that these beautiful antelopeswere nearly decimated completely through hunting too. In the nick of time their fate was turned around when protected areas such as the Cape Peninsula National Park were created and adequate habitat was provided. Other animals were less fortunate. The mood grows somber when Oompie recounted how Bluebuck and the beautiful Quagga roamed the Cape Peninsula but disappeared not long after the Uirst Europeans settled at the Cape of Good Hope.
