OMEGA premieres Planet Ocean in Greece


Planet Ocean, a 90-minute documentary film directed by Yann Arthus-Bertrand and Michael Pitiot in partnership with OMEGA, had its Greek premiere. The premiere took place on Goulandris Natural History Museum- Gaia Centre in Athens through an exclusive event.

Planet Ocean aims to explain some of the planet’s greatest natural mysteries in ways that make them understandable and accessible to everyone. It allows young people to imagine that a more sustainable world is not only desirable but achievable. The film combines the kind of breath-taking aerial shots that have made Arthus-Bertrand’s filmmaking reputation along with underwater imagery from an award-winning team of cameramen. The documentary, which also draws on the talents of some of the world’s leading aerial and underwater cinematographers, oceanographers and biologists, was created to change the way people look at the oceans.


More than 50 guests, including journalists and representatives of environmental conservation non-profit organisations, were present. They were impressed by the film, its spectacular aerial and underwater images and its strong message that conservation and stewardship are responsibilities shared by everyone on Earth. Guests had the opportunity to visit the exhibition in the Atrium of the Museum which featured photos taken by Yann Arthus-Bertrand and unique historical watches from the OMEGA Museum in Switzerland. These timepieces from OMEGA’s past underscored the brand’s dedication to innovation and highlighted its deeply rooted relationship with our planet’s oceans.
