Apple TV+ has released a beautiful and captivating trailer for their upcoming documentary Fathom, which follows a team in the pursuit of communicating with some of the world’s oldest species, the humpback whale.
Directed and photographed by Drew Xanthopoulos (The Sensitives), “Fathom follows Dr. Ellen Garland and Dr. Michelle Fournet, two scientists focused on the study of humpback whale songs and social communication. As they embark on parallel research journeys on opposite sides of the world, they seek to better understand whale culture and communication. The documentary film uniquely reveals a deep commitment and reverence to the scientific process and the universal human need to seek answers about the world around us. From hypothesis to groundbreaking experiences in the field, Fathom showcases the passion, curiosity, collaboration, perseverance and work it takes for leading scientists to make scientific discoveries.”
This looks like such a fascinating and gorgeous documentary. I can’t wait to watch it. Check out the trailer below and poster above, and watch Fathom on Apple TV+ on June 25, 2021.
