Legends of the Deep: The Giant Squid

Scientists know the enigmatic Giant Squid can reach amazing lengths of up to 18 meters, yet they have never been viewed in their natural habitat. Until now. Using two state-of-the-art submersible vessels and special ultra-sensitive, high-definition cameras, Legends of the Deep set out to record this leviathan 1,000 meters beneath the sea. The previously unseen, shimmering beauty of a giant squid lies ahead. Directed byВ Yasuhiro Koyama.
