"The Last Reef 3D: Cities Beneath The Sea," is an uplifting giant screen journey exploring the beauty and mysteries of the world's reef ecosystems: a distant yet parallel world, with living cities undeniably connected to our own human communities. Vanishing at five times the rate of rain forests, the world’s coral reefs are under siege. Through vivid 3D visuals, music and narration, the film reveals the teeming life of these underwater cities, and their crucial role in the ocean’s survival—and our own. Fly across iridescent tropical corals, brush through a cloud of a million jellyfish, visit an alien world where the closer you look, the more you see, where the tiniest creatures support the greatest predators. As these ancient, exotic havens face the threat of extinction, "The Last Reef 3D" inspires audiences with a vision of the reef’s incredible—yet fragile—power to rebuild.
"Rescue 3D" plunges audiences into the hard, but inspiring work of saving lives in the face of a natural disaster. Behind the scenes, the film follows a Canadian naval commander, two pilots, and a volunteer rescue technician as they train for action. When an earthquake strikes Haiti, creating one of the biggest humanitarian disasters of the century, the audience is swept along, joining with the massive effort that brings military and civilian responders and hardware from around the world. "Rescue 3D" is a journey of real-world disaster and emergency response captured with unprecedented scale and impact for the giant screen.
