Coral: Rekindling Venus
Dome Film / Lynette Walworth / Australia / 2012 / 45 min

An extraordinary journey into a mysterious realm of fluorescent coral reefs, bioluminescent sea creatures and rare marine life, revealing a complex community living in the oceans most threatened by climate change. 

“Imagine global co-operation for a global problem. Imagine corals as the barometer of climate change.  Imagine we are the pivot point.  Imagine rekindling Venus.

My intent is to leave the audience with a sense of wonder for the complexity of the coral community and a deep-felt longing to see it survive.

What is apparent when you watch the film is the remarkable survival mechanisms already at play in the community of coral reefs, mechanisms that will be put to the test in the coming years.  We might see ourselves as two different communities interconnected in our own survival.” - Lynette Walworth
