Angel Azul tells the story of an inspiring attempt to draw attention to the perilous situation coral reefs face worldwide. Jason DeCaires Taylor is an eco-sculptor who casts cement statues from live human models and installs them on the ocean floor to create an artificial coral reef. The story follows creation of an angel with wings made from live fan coral. She will reside in an underwater museum alongside 400 of Jason’s statues off the coast of Cancún. Over time the statues grow coral, providing habitat for marine life and a diversion for tourists, giving the natural reefs a reprieve. The story takes a turn when the coral on the statues starts to die. Jason faces his own problems keeping his workshop afloat, but never tires from his efforts to get out the message about this ecosystem in danger. Featuring: Peter Coyote.
