LE MONDE DU SILENCE

(THE SILENT WORLD)

Directed by : Louis MALLE , Jacques-Yves COUSTEAU

Year of production : 1956 Country : FRANCE Length : 86 minutes

Synopsis

Dive into our underwater planet like it had never been seen before. Jacques Cousteau’s Oscar-winning film The Silent World was the first to show us the ocean depths in full color – and one of only two documentaries ever to win the Cannes Film Festival. Co-directed by Louis Malle, this Cousteau classic introduces us to his private world of undersea adventure.

The Calypso crew set sail for the Mediterranean, the Red Sea and the Indian Ocean. Along the way, they explore a shipwreck, swim with dolphins, and become the first to document bloodthirsty sharks in an up-close feeding frenzy. The Silent World is a living piece of cinema history that sets the mark for every underwater filmmaker ever to follow in Cousteau’s legendary wake.
