The Last Reef 3D: Cities Beneath The Sea, is an uplifting giant screen journey exploring the beauty and mysteries of the world’s reef ecosystems: a distant yet parallel world, with living cities undeniably connected to our own human communities. Vanishing at five times the rate of rain forests, the world’s coral reefs are under siege. Through vivid 3D visuals, music and narration, the film reveals the teeming life of these underwater cities, and their crucial role in the ocean’s survival—and our own. Fly across iridescent tropical corals, brush through a cloud of a million jellyfish, visit an alien world where the closer you look, the more you see, where the tiniest creatures support the greatest predators. As these ancient, exotic havens face the threat of extinction, The Last Reef inspires audiences with a vision of the reef’s incredible—yet fragile—power to rebuild.
