Sailing at 10 knots in the heart of a school of hunting tuna, accompanying dolphins in their crazy cavalcades, swimming with the great white shark shoulder to shoulder... The film Oceans is like being a fish among fish.

After Himalaya and Le Peuple migrateur, Jacques Perrin takes us, with unprecedented filming methods, from the polar ice caps to the tropics, to the heart of the oceans and its storms to help us rediscover the known, unknown and ignored marine creatures. Océans questions the imprint that man imposes on wild life and responds through images and emotion to the question: «The Ocean? What is the Ocean?

Monday 20 June at 8:30pm - Auditorium Espace Encan

Free screening, open to the general public and professionals accredited to Sunny Side of the Doc, seats subject to availability.
