OMEGA premieres Planet Ocean in Germany

Planet Ocean, a 90-minute documentary film directed by Yann Arthus-Bertrand and Michael Pitiot in partnership with OMEGA, had its German premiere at a special event in the Egyptian Museum in Munich. In attendance was Yann Arthus-Bertrand.

The Planet Ocean film, which combines spectacular aerial and underwater images, draws on the talent of the world’s leading underwater cinematographers, oceanographers and biologists. It was created to change the way people look at the oceans and to encourage them to image conservation and stewardship as responsibilities shared by everyone on earth.

Yann Arthus-Bertrand, one of the world’s best-known environmental activists and filmmakers, said of his partnership with OMEGA: “When OMEGA proposed the Planet Ocean project to me, I accepted almost immediately; it was time to look at things directly, to illustrate and to denounce the dangers threatening our oceans and therefore our planet. This documentary is not intended to moralize, but rather to raise consciousness.”

The event took place in the new building of the Egyptian Museum and University of Film. Its architectural concept of high ceilings and blue illuminated exposed concrete perfectly underscored the movie’s key messages and OMEGA’s values. Attending the showing were 140 guests, including journalists, customers and local celebrities.
