Oscar-nominated filmmaker Liz Garbus, known for her complex portraits of Bobby Fischer, Nina Simone and Marilyn Monroe, takes a fresh look at the life of undersea explorer Jacques Cousteau. Her profile is neither hagiography nor exposé, but rather a nuanced look at his passions, achievements, blind spots, and tragedies. We gain insights into key figures around him including his first wife Simone and their sons Jean-Michel and Philippe, whose family life took place largely at sea.
