2012 - Cinema – Outdoor screening of "Océans"
The French Embassy in collaboration with UCD Imagine Science Films brought the film Océans for the very first time to Dublin on Earth Day 2012.
Directed by Jacques Perrin and Jacques Cluzaud, Océans is an unforgettable trip in the depths of Earth’s five oceans and their neglected wildlife. With stunning images and a fair share of emotion, the film captures the mysterious and fascinating marine world like never before.
This was the first time the movie was screened in Ireland. This exceptional screening, one of the key events to start the celebrations for Dublin City of Science, was the first hosted by UCD Imagine Science Films.
After a welcoming address by H.E. Emmanuelle d’Achon, French Ambassador to Ireland, and Professor Desmond Fitzgerald, vice-president of research at UCD, the evening kicked-off with a panel discussion with special guests Jacques Cluzaud, co-director of Océans, François Sarano, scientific adviser to the film and mission leader for Captain Cousteau, Professor Chris Bean, Director of UCD Earth Institute, Professor Frédéric Dias of UCD School of Mathematical Sciences, Charlotte O’Kelly, co-founder and managing director of TechWorks Marine and Pierre Eymery, managing director of Veolia Environment.
The outdoor screening of Océans will then started at sunset, around 9:10 pm. The movie was screened in its original French version with English subtitles.
Jacques Cluzaud and François Sarano also took part in a cinema masterclass organised at the School of Media of Dublin Institute of Technology for film and journalism students.
François Sarano spoke to students of the European Section at Newpark Comprehensive School. It was a great opportunity for students, particularly for those who have a special interest in Sciences, to ask François Sarano questions and share his passion for the oceans.
