My Octopus Teacher (trailer)

In the 1960s, Jane Goodall went off to a remote hillside in south central Africa to live in an environment populated by our closest primate relative, the chimpanzee, and to observe, for 30 years — her life, and that of anyone who has read her books or listened to her talks would be forever changed by her endeavor.

Honestly, the wonder, the joy I felt while reading Jane’s Through a Window came back to me while watching this documentary. The narrator of My Octopus Teacher, Craig Foster, spent a year free diving in a patch of the sea off of South Africa’s Cape of Storms. There, in the proverbial octopus’ garden, he not only observed but developed what you’d be tempted to say was a bond with a fist- sized common octopus. The camera work itself leaves viewers spellbound, but it’s the way we’re drawn into the fast and furious life of the octopus that wins the day. Nature viewing at its most intimate.
