My Octopus Teacher with an Oscar for Best Documentary

Although the dust and glitter from the 93rd Academy Awards ceremony in Los Angeles has settled, one thing is worth noting. The winner of the award for best documentary feature film was My Octopus Teacher!

The film What the Octopus Taught Me is a wonderful piece of work where Pippa Ehrlich and James Reed are responsible for the direction and screenplay. The picture tells the story of one very an unusual friendship. The protagonists here are a filmmaker and an octopus that lives in a seaweed forest off the coast of South Africa.

The film is sure to appeal to all lovers of the underwater world

In My Octopus Teacher, a pair of filmmakers follow diver Craig Foster with his camera as he explores an underwater seaweed forest. During his dives in the waters surrounding the Cape Town coast, he meets one very unusual octopus. They strike up a bond that lays the groundwork for a brilliant documentary.

What I enjoyed most about this story was the story of positivity and hope between people and the natural world. It was an opportunity to expand people’s ideas of what the relationship between us and wildlife can be. – – said Pippa Ehrlich

If you haven’t had the opportunity to watch My Octopus Teacher so far, you definitely need to catch up. Certainly, the documentary can be called one of the most interesting and unusual nature films of recent years.

The film also won a number of other awards at prestigious film festivals and received critical acclaim. The Bafta and Producers Guild awards for best documentary are undoubtedly among the most important. Despite the strong competition, the documentary What the Octopus Taught Me has always been a favourite to win a statuette.
