Event Details

Diving Deep: The Life and Times of Mike deGruy, tells that story and while it celebrates Mike and all he accomplished in his amazing career, it also highlights what he cared most about at the time of his death: we are destroying the ocean before we even know what’s there. If Mike deGruy were alive today he would be spending all his energy to fight on behalf of the ocean, for continued exploration, particularly of the deepsea, research, understanding and ultimately encouraging a reciprocal relationship with it before it is too late.

With Mike’s own breathtaking underwater cinematography, his topside storytelling, interviews with Mike and also those he worked with like Sir David Attenborough, James Cameron, Dr. Sylvia Earle, Alastair Fothergill, Paul and Grace Atkins and others, Diving Deep: The Life and Times of Mike deGruy, tells the moving story of one man determined to share both his passion and his concern. Mike deGruy was in deep conversation with the ocean his entire life and as a result, was a consummate storyteller of the sea. But he had a lot more to say and Diving Deep: The Life and Times of Mike deGruy, makes the compelling case that it is now up to us to carry on what Mike deGruy himself couldn’t finish.

But this is also a story about hope. Because while Mike was distraught over our treatment of the oceans, he was also hopeful there would be a change in consciousness. He had tremendous belief in the ability of communities to work together to affect positive change, and he saw in the next generation a group of people who could make that happen.Together, we can carry his mission forward.
