MY FATHER THE CAPTAIN: JACQUES YVES COUSTEAU

Preceded by: WHALE FALL

This film revisits the adventure and the legacy of Captain Cousteau not only through intimate stories from his family but also from some of the people whose lives he influenced.  In rediscovered footage of the earliest days of scuba diving, Jean-Michel Cousteau shows how his father brought the great unseen ocean into focus and into our homes.
