The class will begin with a discussion about the movie. Although we will surely talk about the octopus and her relationship with the South African filmmaker, the focus of the lesson will be on the place where the movie was filmed - False Bay, near the Cape of Good Hope, located on the southern tip of Africa. It is often called the "Cape of Storms" because the Atlantic Ocean there is spectacularly rough and very stormy with ferocious waves. Historically, this place is very famous for the...

There is no homework, but please try to view this Netflix movie prior to attending the class. It is approximately 85 minutes long. I can not recommend this movie enough. As soon as I saw it, it immediately became my favorite documentary of all time. You will not be disappointed! I seen it seven times! It has won the best documentary Oscar in 2021. You can still take the class if you have not watched the movie, but it will be more meaningful if you have seen it. So, if you're finding this class at the last minute, please join us! You can always watch the movie after class.
A Netflix account is necessary in order to watch the movie prior to attending the class. You can still take the class if you have not watched the movie, but it will be more meaningful if you have seen it. So, if you're finding this class at the last minute, please join us!

This is a beautiful movie that Common Sense Media has deemed appropriate for children 8 years old and older. It might upset very sensitive viewers since the octopus does die at the end of the movie. But, this is just a part of the circle of life.
