My Octopus Teacher (Pippa Ehrlich, James Reed – 2020) B+

You would not think a human being can actually form a bond with a cephalopod. In this sweet and beautiful documentary, Craig Foster a film maker from South Africa, during a tough part of his life starts free diving (without an oxygen tank) and happens to find an octopus that grabs his interest. For about a year he dives every day and at first observes, then interacts then becomes sort of a friend to this fascinating amazing creature. We are along for the ride (or dive) and we see really beautiful imagery and touching story.
