My Octopus Teacher 

Pippa Ehrlich, James Reed / 90’ / 2020 / South Africa, Netherlands

When director Craig Foster began freediving lessons in the icy waters of the Atlantic, he didn’t even imagine the warm relationship he would develop with a seabed creature. Years later, he finds that ” we can have meaningful ties to nature anywhere, even with a plant growing in an apartment –  and this thanks to an octopus that inspires us to explore a wild world, but also to become members of a familiar, large family. A cinematic gesture of respect and freedom, a tender cosmology lesson.
