Produced and narrated by Hollywood’s Aquaman Jason Momoa, Deep Rising illuminates the vital relationship between the deep ocean and sustaining life on Earth. Closely paralleled with the development of seabed mining startup The Metals Company, the film follows the organization in its early stages as it pursues funding, public favor and permission from the International Seabed Authority to mine wide swaths of the Pacific Ocean floor. The deep intonation of Momoa’s narration pulls us into the question of the hour: is opening up our earth’s last untouchable wilderness, the deep ocean, really the solution to our supply crisis, or is it yet another misplaced step on humanity’s unstoppable march toward self-destruction?

Mountainfilm is co-presented by the Gorton Center and Lake Forest Open Lands and sponsored by Butler Family Foundation and The Community Church of Lake Forest and Lake Bluff.
