Event description
Award winning documentary following international marine scientists deep in the southern half of the Cabo Verde archipelago.

About this event

This evening we will premiere a Canola Pictures production in association with the Irish Whale and Dolphin Group (IWDG) and the Island foundation. It is a beautifully filmed story in aqua blue waters with plenty of sunshine and stunning footage of a magical landscape and the marine animals that live there.

Programme:

19:30 Mosaic (running time 14:55)

The story of shipwreck pottery and the death of a blue whale combine to inspire a singular artwork. A film by Shane Smith .

20:00 - 21:00 Cabo Verde - Island Jewel

In September 2019, a group of marine scientists travelled to the Cabo Verde, West Africa. They had two weeks to sail from the Barlavento Islands in the north to the Sotavento Islands in the south of the archipelago with a simple ambition; document as much of the marine biodiversity they came across in the largely unexplored marine environment.

Drawn from Ireland, Lithuania, Spain, Switzerland and Cabo Verde itself the scientists would need good fortune and good weather. They found both: favourable conditions allowed them access to inshore waters normally too precarious for research; good fortune the opportunity to document a species previously unrecorded at sea in Cabo Verde.

This is their story.
