Fly across iridescent tropical reefs, brush through a cloud of a million jellyfish, visit an alien world where the closer you look, the more you see. The Last Reef takes us on a global journey to explore our connection with the ocean's complex, parallel worlds. New underwater 3D technology takes us into the heart of the reef, revealing a habitat more diverse and more colorful than you ever imagined. 

We think of reefs as exotic, distant places with little or no connection to our everyday world. Yet every reef is a living city beneath the sea with a parallel existence to ours, distant yet undeniably connected. Reefs are hotspots of biodiversity as vital to life on earth as the rain-forests. They have been shaping our shorelines, literally forming islands and mountains, for millions of years.

The Last Reef was shot over a period of 3 years, with the bulk of the underwater footage captured on the Reefs of Palau, 500 miles west of the Philippines. Palau is a beautiful archipelago of limestone rock islands, sheltered by a massive reef,  with a multitude of easily accessible coral formations in clear calm waters. Chosen because of the amazing bio-diversity, and world renowned dive sites. Individual sites in the movie include Jellyfish Lake, Blue Corner, the German Channel and Mandarin Fish Lake.

Last Reef is produced by Giant Screen Films.
