Maltese Filmmakers Show Incredible And Haunting Underwater Museum
Equal parts creepy and beautiful
Museo Atlántico is a hauntingly beautiful underwater museum just off the coast of Lanzarote in the Canary Islands. It consists of 10 different groups of sculptures, and has everything from business men on playground swings to a very direct reference to the current refugee crisis in the Mediterranean.
Now, a documentary filmed and edited by a group of Maltese filmmakers is giving everyone an incredible look at the only underwater museum in Europe and the man behind it all.
Artist Jason deCaires Taylor, the creator of Museo Atlántico, is known for his underwater creations. "The ocean is an incredible space where I disconnect," Jason said. The short film was produced by BRND WGN, directed by Kurt Arrigo, edited by Jeremy Debattista in collaboration with Andrew Randon. It also offers some behind the scenes footage of some of the infamous sculptures being built on land before being transported to their final resting place.
