Release Date

Directed by Matthieu Rytz (Anote’s Ark), Deep Rising premiered at the 2023 Sundance Film Festival in and opens in theaters on October 27th, 2023.


Deep Rising, narrated and executive produced by Jason Momoa, takes viewers on an epic journey from the ocean’s depths to the future of sustainable energy. Through awe-inspiring footage of the deep’s most dazzling creatures, this feature-length documentary illuminates the secrets of the deep ocean and how its fate holds the key to our survival. In a riveting tale of geopolitical, corporate and scientific intrigue, Deep Rising sheds light on the secretive International Seabed Authority (ISA), responsible for nearly half our planet’s surface on the ocean floor, while highlighting the vital need to protect the seabed as the common heritage of humankind and stressing the urgency of responsible choices for future generations.


In their review Variety wrote, “There’s a great deal of visual enchantment in “Deep Rising,” if a somewhat murky conclusion to be drawn from it all. This second documentary feature from photographer Matthieu Rytz (“Anote’s Ark”) mixes spectacular views of deep ocean life with a gander at opposing sides in a largely under-the-radar international fight over whether to mine minerals from those hitherto unspoiled, barely-explored depths.”
