For some, the ocean is an unknowable adversary. For Mike deGruy, the ocean was his home, her inhabitants his family. As a filmmaker and activist, Mike pushed the boundaries of what human beings thought was possible to explore the depths of the ocean and show the world the lives of his sea creature friends. Tragically, Mike died doing what he loved—but the story of his life with his underwater family is told in cinematic glory in DIVING DEEP: THE LIFE AND TIMES OF MIKE DEGRUY.
Featuring never-before-seen footage artfully assembled by Mike’s wife and filmmaking partner, Mimi DeGruy, DIVING DEEP is a call to action on behalf of the world’s oceans. The bio-doc includes funny and poignant commentary from Mike’s friends and collaborators, filmmaker James Cameron, National Geographic Explorer Sylvia Earle, British broadcaster Sir David Attenborough, and the deGruy children. You may not have heard of Mike deGruy’s work to save our oceans but seeing it will change your perspective forever.
