Great Barrier Reef conservation takes centre stage in new IMAX documentary


You need to go to IMAX in Melbourne. Why? Because the Great Barrier Reef’s capacity to survive is under threat. In their new documentary GREAT BARRIER REEF 3D, shot by Emmy award-winning Australian cinematographer Richard Fitzpatrick, ACS, they examine the reef’s resilience in the face of climate change and coral decline, the family-friendly movie encourages young audiences to reflect on the role they too can play in protecting this unique marine reserve.   Narrated by Eric Bana, the film follows reef guardian Jemma Craig on an expedition along Australia’s east coast to Green Island, Fitzroy Island and Lady Elliot Island as she documents the work being done by volunteers and citizen scientists to help researchers gain a more comprehensive understanding of the natural world.  For more and to show you care about the planet, head over to watch the GREAT BARRIER REEF 3D movie at IMAX Melbourne from March 19.
