Oscar Spotlight: “My Octopus Teacher”

“My Octopus Teacher,” nominated this year for an Academy Award® in the category of best documentary feature, captures filmmaker and naturalist Craig Foster over the course of a year as he follows a wild common octopus in a South Africa kelp forest. By tracking her movements daily, Foster develops a deeper understanding of the sea creature and her environment and relays the impact of this experience on his life.
