Coral reefs are the rainforest of the ocean. Providing food and shelter to millions of species, they bloom under the surface. Put under stress by rising temperatures, overfishing and pollution, corals expel the algae living in their tissue and reveal their ghost-like skeleton.
Bleaching isn’t always fatal and resilient reefs can recover. Accompanied by hydrophone recordings of submarine city sounds, Anthozoa is an ode to the ocean and its awe- inspiring biodiversity.
