Jacques Cousteau Season begins

Monthly trio of screenings of Cousteau's feature documentaries from 1956, 1954 and 1976.

Image of Jacques Cousteau steering a shipJacques-Yves Cousteau was an explorer, conservationist, filmmaker, scientist,
photographer, naval officer, author and researcher who studied the sea and all forms of life in water. He co-developed the Aqua-Lung and pioneered marine conservation.

We have three special screenings of Cousteau’s feature documentaries from 1956, 1954 and 1976, celebrating the natural world beneath the sea in the company of its greatest explorer. 

Season screening details

Recipients of numerous awards, including multiple
Oscars and the Palme D’Or, these films reveal the beauty, majesty, thrill and danger to be found at sea and beneath the waves, from the tropical waters of
the Red Sea, the Indian Ocean and the Mediterranean, to the frozen world of Antarctica.

Cousteau and his crew faced adventures the likes of which few had seen, from the pressures of living in a purpose-built underwater base for weeks at a time, to the life-or-death struggle for survival at the South Pole.

Cousteau’s ship The Calypso and its crew inspired Wes Anderson’s fantastic film ‘The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou’, loved by so many. Come and see the real thing!
