SECRETS OF THE REEF (USA, 2008, 78 min.)

Washington, D.C. Premiere An immersion into the metropolis of a Pacific coral reef as seen through the lives of three of its inhabitants, a sea turtle, a hermit crab and a fish. Their struggle for survival in a fish-eat-fish world is set against a backdrop of incredible beauty and color. But all is not well in the reef metropolis: An unseen threat approaches closer by the day–one bigger than any they have faced before. A gripping story, the film culminates in a bold statement about reef conservation. Directed and written by Jonathan Bird. Executive Producer, Christine Bird.

Discussion with filmmakers Jonathan Bird and Christine Bird follows screening.
