India's Coral Reef Film highlights fragile ecosystem

A film of the amazing and beautiful coral islands in India filmed by a group of environmentalists will be shown at Brihan Maharashtra College of Commerce (BMCC). The film focuses on the key role of the ecosystem and the importance of its protection.

The film was created to promote nature education and conservation. India’s 6,500 km coastline and the Gulf of Kutch, Palk Strait, Gulf of Mannar, Andaman and Nicobar Islands and Lakshadweep Islands are rich with coral reef life...

Contributors to the film are Pande, Anand Abhyankar, Chandrahas Kolhatkar, Tanuja Rahane, Prashant Deshpande, Dr Anand Padhye, Hemant Ghate and others. ELA Foundation has dedicated this film to the memory of late Vatsala Bhimsen Joshi, for inspiring the activities of the ELA Foundation, of which she was a founder. SoftLab Pune completed the video-processing and produced the film in CD. The CD will be available at a nominal donation price on Friday at the film showing.
