Coral: Rekindling Venus

Environmental Film Festival Australia 2015

Take an extraordinary journey into the mysterious realm of coral reefs and rare marine life.

Australian installation artist Lynette Wallworth has spent the last five years surveying the majesty of our coral reefs for Coral: Rekindling Venus, an immersive, kaleidoscopic journey through the glowing underwater forests of Australia, Papua New Guinea and Indonesia. Presented in the enveloping full dome of Melbourne’s Planetarium, Coral: Rekindling Venus takes us deep into a world that only a handful of humans have ever seen before – the infinitely complex, vibrant aquatic kingdoms of this planet’s coral reefs.

Featuring jaw-dropping cinematography from Emmy Award-winner David Hannan and a hypnotic, ethereal soundtrack featuring works by Antony Hegarty (of Antony and the Johnsons), Coral: Rekindling Venus is a staggering cinematic experience and an ecological call-to-arms.

This event is part of the Environmental Film Festival Australia.
