World Ocean Day
June 8, 2021 @ 08:00 - 17:00
June 8th is World Ocean Day, and what better way to celebrate than by joining for a screening of the Oscar-winning documentary, My Octopus Teacher?
For the first time in South Africa, Oceaneers, alongside partners Mahina, Plushi, Camissa Moon and Ocean Pledge are thrilled to bring this Proudly South African film to life on the big screen. Taking place at Cape Town’s iconic Labia Theatre, this once-off, free screening kicks off at 17:15.
Although entry is free, space is limited, so be sure to reserve your tickets by answering a few simple questions on the Oceaneers website.
Five exciting eco-conscious brands are coming together to present this once-off screening to the public. Filmed just off our shores in the Great African Seaforest, My Octopus Teacher follows Craig Foster and his team from the Sea Change Project, as they try to understand one of nature’s most fascinating sea-creatures.
The documentary has been described by New York Magazine as ”one of the most touching accounts of interspecies relationships ever told.”
The lessons Craig takes away from his spectacular encounters are significant and the message he shares with us is profound.
In the film Craig recounts, “What she taught me is to feel that you are part of this place. Not a visitor. And that’s a huge difference.”
With Mahina towels for sale, complimentary treats from Happy People Foods, delicious post screening snacks from Camissa Moon and prizes from Captain Fanplastic, this event is surely not one to miss. Plushi will alo present their short about sustainability called, “Think Conscious.”
For those who feel a strong call to action, you are invited to become an Oceaneer.
