EXPLORING BLOODY BAY WALL (USA, 2012, 13 min.)
World Premiere A highly acclaimed dive spot, Bloody Bay Wall sits at the top of a 5,000-foot underwater cliff off Little Cayman Island in the Caribbean Sea. Since 1986, it has been protected as a marine park. In 2010, a group gathers to explore, dive and record changes here. These include: marine geologist Carrie Manfrino, ecologist David Gruber and brain researcher Vince Pieribone, seeking new fluorescing proteins, and photographer Jim Hellemn with a special rig designed to create a super-size composite image of the wall. Motivated by questions of human biology, coral reef ecosystems and the stunning beauty of Bloody Bay Wall, their collaborations help illuminate what rich marine life offers humanity. Directed and produced by David Conover.
Discussion with filmmaker David Conover and marine scientist Nancy Knowlton.
