“Coral: Rekindling Venus” is a documentary that takes the 2013 Sundance Film Festival to new places.

Lynette Wallworth’s documentary examines life in the oceans’ coral reefs. On the film’s website, Wallworth urges viewers to “imagine global co-operation for a global problem. Imagine corals as the barometer of climate change. Imagine we are the pivot point. Imagine rekindling Venus.”

The film, shot for the digital planetarium format, will not only screen at the festival’s New Frontier installation space in Park City, but at Salt Lake City’s Clark Planetarium and at planetariums around the country.
