World Without Sun
DIRECTOR: JACQUES-YVES COUSTEAU
Cousteau and his cohort set up in a state-of-the-art, saucer-like underwater base, and we get to live alongside these so-called oceanauts on the ocean floor, in what is perhaps the most playful and purely enchanting of the explorer-filmmaker’s works, winner of the Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature. The wit is the only thing that’s dry here, while the views from under the sea are nothing short of otherworldly.
