Jason Momoa narrates this exquisite fly-on-the-wall environmental documentary about one of the earth’s least explored and most pristine environments: the deep sea.

A gripping and up-to-the-minute tale of geopolitical, scientific, and corporate intrigue. Directed by Matthieu Rytz (Anote’s Ark), Deep Rising exposes the machinations of a secretive organization empowered to greenlight massive extraction of metals from the deep seafloor that are deemed essential to the electric battery revolution. 

The documentary also follows mining startup The Metals Company, as it pursues funding, public favor, and permission from the International Seabed Authority to mine wide swaths of the Pacific Ocean floor.

Demystifying this global crisis with intimate detail, Deep Rising illuminates the vital relationship between the deep ocean and sustaining life on Earth.

Short Film Thinking Forward, directed by Henry Simmons will be screened prior to the film.

How outback Frazier Jody Brown and renowned Mexican regenerative cattle rancher Alejandro Carrillo brought together a group of like minded farmers and thinkers together on a remote cattle station in dry Central Queensland. Join the group as they begin their regenerative adventure and try to create a sustainable future for agriculture in the region.

“Visually lush. Stunning.” - Variety


“Deep Rising is a warning that there are no quick fixes, and we should always be wary of miracle solutions, as none really exist.” - Collider
