After years spent filming some of the planet’s most dangerous animals, Craig Foster decided to put a halt to his career to reconnect with the magical underwater world of the kelp forest off the coast of his hometown - Cape Town, South Africa. For nearly a decade, Craig went diving daily in the icy cold waters. The common octopus he met became first his subject, then his teacher, showing him things no human had ever witnessed. My Octopus Teacher documents a unique friendship, interaction and animal intelligence never seen before.
Academy Award®-winning Writer/Director of Simon Wiesenthal Center's Moriah Films, Richard Trank moderates a discussion with the Co-Directors of My Octopus Teacher, Pippa Ehrlich and James Reed.
