Antarctica Underwater is largely constructed from incidental footage collected in icy cold Antarctic waters, hundreds of meters below the surface. While oceanographers were gathering specimens and data, a seal bumped into an underwater camera, and a serene jellyfish floated by, as did a ctenophore. The five to ten second vignettes were like phrases waiting to be put into a coherent sentence, not yet carrying full weight, but promising to stir curiosity and compassion.
