Episode 1: French Polynesia - Marine Life
The first episode explores exceptionally beautiful landscapes as well as rare intact marine life. Through the eyes of 32 year old Léa Brassy, we experience surfing, spearfishing and apnoea diving. Pierre Rabhi, a French philosopher and author, guides change perspectives towards nature. Through Léa and people we meet on the way, we learn about the reality the locals of French Polynesia are facing on these assumed paradise islands.
