Jason Momoa’s Deep Rising To Make Its Official India Premiere at ALT EFF 2023; Deets Inside

Jason Momoa’s film gets its India premiere.

The film is a real-life documentary that delves into the fate of the deep oceans, narrated by Jason Momoa.

All Living Things Environmental Film Festival (ALT EFF), India’s largest environmental film festival focusing on themes of environment, sustainability and climate change, will feature the official India premiere of Jason Momoa’s highly acclaimed film, Deep Rising. The festival, now in its 4th edition, will take place from December 1 to 10 this year.

Deep Rising, narrated and produced by the Aquaman fame actor, Jason Momoa, and directed by Matthieu Ritz, is a groundbreaking real-life documentary that delves into the fate of the planet’s last untouched wilderness: the deep ocean. The film sheds light on the imminent threat faced by the deep ocean due to a secretive organization’s plans to allow massive extraction of seabed metals to address the world’s energy crisis. Through awe-inspiring visuals and compelling storytelling, Deep Rising showcases the vital relationship between the deep ocean and sustaining life on Earth.

The documentary follows the journey of The Metals Company, a mining startup, as it navigates the challenges of securing funding, gaining public favour and obtaining permission from the International Seabed Authority to mine extensive areas of the Pacific Ocean floor. Deep Rising serves as a powerful reminder of the urgent need to protect our oceans and preserve the delicate balance of marine ecosystems.

Kunal Khanna, Festival Director of ALT EFF, said, “As the world economy is forging its way to electrification, this film provides compelling insights about its consequences. It exemplifies the festival’s mission to raise awareness about pressing environmental issues and inform us about perspectives that are scarce in our current narratives. We invite film enthusiasts, environmentalists, and the general public to join us in this cinematic journey that not only educates but also empowers viewers to make a difference. This film much like the others we have lined up this year are imperative way to utilise a crucial medium of storytelling through films to bring awareness to real issues that stand before us. Deep Rising is one such imperative story that needs to be told and needs to be highlighted in the public domain.”

“India stands at a fork in the road when it comes to regenerative energy solutions. Right now, the country has a choice to either continue being one of the driving forces pushing for DSM (Deep Seabed Mining), or it could leverage its resources and technological expertise to lead the world forward and away from this paradigm that has brought us to the brink of environmental collapse. India has the opportunity to be a positive change in the world, which is why we are pleased to partner with ALTEFF 2023 for the India Premiere of Deep Rising,” said Matthieu Rytz, director of Deep Rising.
