Seaside Center Film: Chasing Coral will be screened Monday, Sept. 4, 3-5 p.m. For the closing day of the Bruce Museum Seaside Center season at Greenwich Point Park, the staff will present the award-winning documentary Chasing Coral, an ocean adventure film. This film offers a breathtakingly beautiful look at some of the Earth’s most incredible natural wonders while offering a sober warning about their uncertain future. It reveals the story of a team of photographers, scientists and other experts who discover and try to capture one of the world’s largest coral bleaching events.

The production took 3.5 years to make and features over 500 hours of underwater footage with submissions from over 30 countries. The film is about 90 minutes long and will be followed by a brief discussion led by Seaside Center naturalist Jennifer Imm.

No reservations required, but seating is limited. Free with Park admission. Beach cards and parking passes are required for Park admission.
