Ocean lovers, do not miss these fascinating movies that will be shown both in person and virtually!


A lemon shark called Manoela grows up in the waters of Fernando do Noronha off the coast of Brazil. Her extraordinary senses allow her to detect scents, sounds and even the tiny electric fields of her prey. In particular, she specializes in a hunting technique that has only ever been observed in this spot: hunting sardines in the waves. When we look closer behind the breakers, we discover unsuspected alliances and unusual behaviors.

IN BETWEEN 2 WATERS – Caroline Ragusa & Sylvain Bes
Chiara is standing there, alone with herself, until she meets Nero, her double and her opposite at the same time. This story is a deep immersion at the root of our origins, an ode to life.

THE GREEN WAVE: MAUI – Emmanuel Bouvet 
From the conservation of the rainforest to the preservation of our oceans, The Green Wave emphasizes the community destiny between land and ocean and the great efforts some of us are deploying to incarnate the solution.
