A Netflix Love Story Between A Man and An Octopus
Netflix is here to save 2020, with the love story we didn’t know we needed – My Octopus Teacher, a man’s bond with an octopus.
After a chance encounter while freediving in a South African kelp forest in 2010, Craig Foster, who also produced My Octopus Teacher, decided to follow a curious young octopus. Filmed over the course of a year, Foster documents his experiences with the octopus and the effect the relationship had on his life, culminating in a rousing scene where the octopus hesitantly reaches out to touch Foster with a tentacle.
