Join Herring Gut Educators Georgie Burruss and Patrick Burnham for a film discussion of My Octopus Teacher, Tuesday, March 30, at 7 p.m.
Participants are asked to watch the Netflix documentary prior to this event and be ready to engage in an exciting and informative discussion, according to the school.
Filmmaker and free diver Craig Foster spent the last decade diving off the rocky coastline of Cape Town, South Africa, known for its extremely cold water and rough conditions. The kelp forest where the story takes place is a clear and still patch in the midst of a chaotic coast, rich in biodiversity.
One day, he meets an octopus as he is exploring the kelp forest, and driven by a playful but serious curiosity he builds trust with the young octopus that allows him to bear witness to most of her short life and find unexpected meaning in his own.
A Zoom link will be shared the day of event.
