Sagax Entertainment has just finished the post-production of AT THE EDGE OF LIGHT, a short documentary directed by Fabiano d’Amato and James Nikitine of Manaia Productions. Luc Hardy was part of this expedition, organized by Uncharted Blue, and was accompanied by scientists Carole Baldwin, David Kline and Nicole de Voogd.
The expedition was conducted near the small island of Klein Curacao in the Caribbean Sea in August/September 2018.
AT THE EDGE OF LIGHT (13’ short-documentary) covers the Pax Arctica Coral Reef Expedition of Aug/Sep2018 in Klein Curacao. Produced by Sagax Entertainment and directed by Fabiano D’Amato and James Nikitine this film covers the largely unexplored deep ocean reefs surrounding the uninhabited island of Klein Curaçao which serve as biodiversity hotbeds and could hold the answers to many unanswered scientific questions.
Reef ecosystems around the world are in decline and threatened from global warming leading to mass coral bleaching, ocean acidification, overfishing and other local impacts. Marine scientists from Scripps Institution of Oceanography, Smithsonian’s National Museum for Natural History, and Naturalis Biodiversity Center lead a scientific mission using a state-of-the-art manned submersible, the Curasub, to explore the islands’ uncharted depths of up to 1000ft and collect baseline observations to inform continued research.
AT THE EDGE OF LIGHT provides a better understanding of the lesser studied deep-sea reefs and their unique ecosystems with hundreds and maybe even thousands of species yet to be discovered.
This expedition was organized by Uncharted Blue, a non-profit organization connecting adventure seekers with world-renowned scientists and marine technology to fuel exploration and conservation.
