Cousteau, who died in 1997, described himself as "a witness to change." This respectful, visually compelling biography invites -- indeed, implores - a new generation to bear witness, too.
Featuring never-before-seen 4K footage of Cousteau with exclusive access to The Cousteau Society archives. Breezy, simply presented, and plenty illuminating, 'Becoming Cousteau' shirks the typical talking heads doc format in favour of shrewdly selected archive materials accompanied by compelling voiceover testimony.
Liz Garbus’s film pays tribute to his legacy as an explorer, inventor and filmmaker but also charts his evolution into a passionate advocate for the environment.
