In 2017 Jeff Orlowski followed up his influential and award-winning documentary Chasing Ice with Chasing Coral. Where Chasing Ice looked at the effect of the earth’s changing climate is having on the ice in places such as Iceland and Greenland through the eyes of environmental photographer James Balog, Chasing Coral looks at the disappearance of the coral reefs through the eyes of scientists, divers and photographers. Both documentaries highlight the negative impacts that climate change is having on these natural phenomenon. Given the unprecedented death and damage that coral reefs have recently been experiencing, Chasing Coral could not have came at a more prescient time.
