PEFF: ALICK AND ALBERT
DOUGLAS WATKIN | AUSTRALIA | ENGLISH | 2021 | 93 MIN
Part of Green Screen: Philadelphia Environmental Film Festival
Following an unlikely meeting, Prince Albert II decides to accept an invitation to the island Badu, the homeland of acclaimed artist Alick Tipoti. With his delegation from the Monaco Oceanographic Museum in tow, Albert begins to ingratiate himself in the culture. The duo go reef diving, have poignant meetings with other local artists and elders, and engage in countless thoughtful conversations about the similarities and differences in their communities, all with an ever-present eye on the issues facing the oceans that join them from worlds away. Douglas Watkin’s gently realized film documents the details of this trip and the efforts made by the new friends to raise awareness for rising sea levels and plastic pollution and teach a lesson about preserving the bodies of water that bond us all.
