UN Environment Programme (UNEP) Goodwill Ambassador, Yann Arthus-Bertrand, photographer, filmmaker, and philanthropist, screened his film, Planet Ocean to the United Nations community on Wednesday.
UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon opened the event and made introductory remarks at the film’s New York debut.
Co-directed by Michael Pitiot, narrated by Josh Duhamel, Planet Ocean features dazzling aerial and underwater imagery to deliver a far-reaching assessment of the political and environmental challenges facing our oceans, including over-fishing, pollution and climate change.
The film has been financed by OMEGA. The firm has long been associated with the planet’s oceans and understands the dangers facing them, as well as the importance of their preservation. The partnership between OMEGA and Planet Ocean was created in the spirit of its support for late friend and brand ambassador Sir Peter Blake and its decades-long sport of oceanic health and exploration.
