Becoming Cousteau

Becoming Cousteau

Available on Disney+
BECOMING COUSTEAU is award-winning documentarian Liz Garbus' film about the life and legacy of Jacques Cousteau, the French naval officer who spent five decades exploring and advocating for the deep sea. The documentary chronicles how injuries from a crash led Cousteau to join two free divers for rehabilitation, which eventually led to undersea missions, movies, a decade-long documentary TV series, and eventually a final chapter as an internationally renowned conservationist and environmental activist. Featuring recordings of interviews with the late Cousteau, his family, colleagues, and collaborators, as well as narrated letters and journal entries (French actor Vincent Cassel voices Jacques' writings), the documentary is both a thorough profile of and a tribute to the legendary explorer.
