NYC - Film Screening - Coral City


Director/ Editor/ Producer: John McSwain.
Director of Photography: Jake Burghart.
The Director, members of the film crew and Colin Foord from Coral Morphologic will be present at the Screening

The Explorers Club, The Creators Project and VICE cordially invites you to the New York premiere screening of Coral City. A film that documents the extraordinary world of corals that live in the Center of one of America's busiest Cities. It is one of the few places in the country where living reefs can be found only a few feet from stoplights. Miami is one of only a handful of major cities where coral can be found growing inside the city limits and it is the only city in the continental US with an urban coral ecosystem where you can step into the water just off of a city street and find an entire living ecosystem thriving just under the surface.

This documentary takes an exclusive look at the process behind Coral Morphologic's living artworks, colorful reefs created using coral polyps native to Miami. Watch as the scientific art collective explores the visual storytelling potential of coral reef organisms through film, multimedia and site-specific artworks. Additionally, learn how rising sea levels, combined with government dredging projects, are impacting not only corals, but the entire fate of Miami."
