“People protect what they love.” Screen Media Films has debuted an official US trailer for the underwater documentary Wonders of the Sea, which was originally made and shown in 3D but is just being released straight-to-VOD in the US next month. Wonders of the Sea is co-produced and co-directed by Jean-Michel Cousteau, one of Jacques Cousteau’s children, who has been making underwater films for many, many years. The doc was filmed over three years in locations ranging from Fiji to the Bahamas. The cast includes Céline Cousteau, Fabien Cousteau, and Jean-Michel Cousteau. Along with Arnold Schwarzenegger, who talks about how important it is to save our oceans and our planet. “Don’t ever ever buy into the idea that the environment ought to be a political issue… there is no democrat or republican air, there is no democrat or republican water. We breath the same air and we drink the same water,” he said at the film’s premiere at the San Sebastian Film Festival in 2017. Looks like a stunningly gorgeous film to watch with your whole family.
