A filmmaker forges an unusual friendship with an octopus living in a South African kelp forest, learning the mysteries of her world.

Winner of the 2021 Oscar for Best Documentary, My Octopus Teacher chronicles the unusual friendship between a filmmaker and an octopus. After years of swimming every day in the freezing ocean at the tip of Africa, Craig Foster meets an unlikely teacher - a young octopus who displays remarkable curiosity. Visiting her den and tracking her movements for months on end, he eventually wins the animal's trust, and they develop a never-before-seen bond between human and wild animal.
