Chasing Coral will be followed with an informative Q&A on the research done of the corals in the Gulf by Dr. Aaron Bartholomew – PhD in Marine Science, College of William and Mary, USA, a Professor at the American University in Sharjah.
Dr. Aaron Bartholomew has taught general biology, ecology, evolution, fish biology, marine biology and senior research. His areas of research include coral and coral reef fish communities of Dubai, artificial reefs, predator/prey/habitat relations and marine ecology in general. Prior to his academic career, he was a post-doctoral researcher at the National Marine Fisheries Service in Miami, Florida, USA.
Chasing Coral taps into the collective will and wisdom of an ad man, a self-proclaimed coral nerd, top-notch camera designers, and renowned marine biologists as they invent the first timelapse camera to record bleaching events as they happen. Unfortunately, the effort is anything but simple, and the team doggedly battles technical malfunctions and the force of nature in pursuit of their golden fleece: documenting the indisputable and tragic transformation below the waves. With its breathtaking photography, nail-biting suspense, and startling emotion, Chasing Coral is a dramatic revelation that won’t have audiences sitting idle for long.
