Sea2See - Film Review
Sea2See – Film Review

Among the initiatives organized on the occasion of the 63rd Genoa Boat Show is an interesting opportunity to experience the sea on the big screen as well. This is the appointment with Sea2See, a film festival now in its third year and organized in the courtyard of Palazzo Ducale in Genoa from Friday, Sept. 22 to Sunday, Sept. 24.

Three evenings, three sea movies, and above all three different ways of experiencing the sea, with patroness model and sailing enthusiast Rachele Fogar, daughter of explorer Ambrogio. The screenings will be held in the Ducal Palace courtyard in Silent Cinema mode. What does it mean? You will enjoy the movie on comfortable deck chairs while wearing comfortable headphones, provided by the organization.

Screenings are scheduled on the evenings of Friday 22, Saturday 23 and Sunday 24 at 9 p.m., with opening hours at 8:45 p.m. There is no ticket to buy: the screenings are free and admission is allowed upon reservation while seats last. Each evening will be devoted to a different view of the sea and will be introduced by a person connected to the world of the sea:

The Morning light – by Paul Crowder, Mark Monroe

Roy E. Disney is not only the grandson of the more famous Walt, but also an avid sailor who in 2007 selected a group of young people between the ages of eighteen and twenty-three to participate in the Transpacific Yacht Race and narrate their adventure-through the direction of Paul Crowder and Mark Monroe-in the film Morning light. Determined to win the most important of open ocean competitions against the top professionals in the field, the Morning Light boys and girls put their skills and abilities on the 2,500 miles between Los Angeles and Honolulu.

Sea2See. Chasing the thunder – by Mark Benjamin, Marc Levin

For ten years, the ship “Thunder” has been obtaining, undisturbed and illegally, a profit worth millions. Now, however, protectors of the seas Sea Shepherd are after her. The captains of the activist ship “Bob Barker” and Sam Simon are following her for 10,000 nautical miles in international waters in order to stop the action of these poachers. Chasing the thunder is a thriller on the high seas, a hunt along three oceans, in which the international team of ocean protectors, made up of volunteers, regularly collides with illegal fishing.

The Aquatic Adventures of Steve Zissou – by Wes Anderson

with Bill Murray, Owen Wilson, Cate Blanchett, Anjelica Huston, Willem Dafoe, Jeff Goldblum, and Michael Gambon.

Steve Zissou is a marine documentary researcher-director (a figure inspired by Jacques Cousteau) who, since the day his best friend is devoured by a jaguar shark, hires an expedition to hunt down the animal. Murray’s traveling companions are his wife, son, a pregnant journalist, crew, and a bestiary of fantastic pets (a multicolored seahorse, zebra crabs, luminescent jellyfish, etc.).

The Sea2See review is a project of Luigi Magliari in collaboration with Genoa International Boat Show, Confindustria Nautica and with the collaboration of the Flying Donkeys production company and Noura Cinema.
