This production was inspired by the Transit of Venus - when Venus passes directly in front of the Sun - an event that happens every century. Through history, previous Venus transits unified a global effort to determine the distance between the Earth and Sun.
A metaphor for global cooperation on climate change, this 20-minute program blends art, beauty and science. The music only soundtrack pairs with an extraordinary journey into a mysterious realm of fluorescent coral reefs, bioluminescent sea creatures and rare marine life, filmed in the oceans most threatened by climate change.
