Please join us at the Mary Pickford Theater in Cathedral City on Saturday, January 27 at 2 p.m. for a free screening of the documentary, Chasing Coral.
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 time-lapse 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.
Following the screening, S.C.R.A.P. Gallery will host a reception for guests to view the exhibit, Against The Current, which features artwork and a "reef" created with recycled and reused materials. The S.C.R.A.P. Gallery is located at 68718 E. Palm Canyon Drive, across from the Mary Pickford Theater. For more information call 760/861-6479.
