When: Friday, October 30, 2020 5:00 – 7:00 PM, EDT

I looked for a truly remarkable, uplifting movie and I found one. - Randy


The next NoVES Movie Series Discussion event will be held this Saturday. 

This is a movie showing via Zoom followed by a discussion.  It will start

by broadcasting the movie so that we may watch it together. The movie

itself is 1 hour 25 minutes.

If you have already seen the movie, you may join the Zoom Meeting at around 6:30 PM to join the discussion.

EVENT DETAILS:  My Octopus Teacher (2020) TV-G

IMDB includes this summary of the movie:

My Octopus Teacher

After years of swimming every day in the freezing ocean at the tip of Africa, Craig Foster meets an unlikely teacher a young octopus who displays remarkable curiosity. Visiting her den and tracking her movements for months on end he eventually wins the animal's trust and they develop a never-before-seen bond between human and wild animal. 

What a beautiful film. Behind all the stunning imagery, emotion and story is the relentless discipline to dive every day for 5 years and then discover this bond over a year in freezing cold water. I have been to the kelp forest and gone into the water. To hold one’s breath and be still to capture such astonishing beauty over such a long period of time is nothing but remarkable. In an age of staged nature films the simplicity and authenticity of the story is brilliant.

The Zoom link for the movie showing and discussion is included below.

I look forward to showing this movie and the discussion.
