SYNOPSIS:
Artist Jason deCaire Taylor is a passionate environmentalist who is concerned about what the world will look like for future generations. Marcy Cravatís beautifully shot film transports us to an underwater world populated by Taylorís hauntingly life-like statues that give birth to an artificial coral reef designed to restore the ecosystem.

Through stunning underwater cinematography, we see his magical creations in various stages of being transformed by coral, algae and other forms of life. We also experience the mentoring of local artisans in the Yucatan peninsula, where Taylorís project is conceived, and the camaraderie that comes from his labor-intensive plaster casting of real people.

As is often the case, Taylor must play the political game as he seeks to install his sculptures in some of the Earthís most beautiful - and endangered - underwater habitats. ďAngel Azul,Ē like Taylorís moving artistry, forces us to consider our choices and the impact of climate change already being felt around the world. ĖDavid Becker
