Screening event at The Ocean Conference: A Deep Dive into Rio de Janeiro's Ocean
Produced in partnership between the UNDP RIO+ Centre and Brazilian marine biologist Ricardo Gomes, the 73-minute documentary film "Urban Bay" examines the marine life that exists under Rio de Janeiro’s iconic Guanabara Bay, a bay that has been shadowed in negative global attention during the Olympic Games in 2016 in Rio de Janeiro. Despite popular thought that the bay is inhospitable, Ricardo Gomes shows that there is a diverse world of marine life in Rio de Janeiro’s bay, although we do not know how long this resiliency will last. This is a side event for the I United Nations Ocean Conference (5-9 June 2017, New York City).
