The Dark side of the ocean

Wednesday, July 22, 2015 - 7:00pm - 10:00pm

Marine biologist and cameraman Rick Rosenthal has been filming in the ocean for decades, but one spectacle has eluded him and every other filmmaker, until now – the vast “vertical migration” – when billions of animals rise from the depths to the ocean’s surface. It is the greatest migration on earth, and this astonishing event happens every night, in every ocean of the world.

This event is co-sponsored by the Carsey-Wolf Center and UCSB Summer Sessions.

Post-screening Q&A and reception will follow.
