"The sea, once it casts its spell, holds one in its net of wonder forever," said the legendary Jacques Cousteau.

With exclusive access to the Cousteau Society Archives and never-before-seen footage, two-time Academy Award® nominee and Emmy winner Liz Garbus (THE FARM: ANGOLA, USA, WHAT HAPPENED, MISS SIMONE?) paints a portrait of inventor, explorer, environmentalist and filmmaker Jacques Cousteau, who opened up the ocean to humankind in ways no one had before.
