My Octopus Teacher

My Octopus Teacher is a Netflix documentary film, filmed in South Africa, and the first South African nature documentary to be one of Netflix's original productions.  It stars Craig Vorster and his friendship with an octopus in a kelp forest near False Bay close to Simons Town in the Cape. 

It is an absolutely remarkable documentary and I will not spoil  anything about the documentary other than to say that it involves fights between the octopus and pyjama sharks and you will be astounded at how intelligent octopus are. The footage is amazing and it has already won some awards.  If you have Netflix, I strongly recommend that you watch this South African sensation which is being watched around the world at the moment!

I think this really will resonate with people and the relationship between diver and the octopus sounds very exciting and I think this documentary will make one feel more connected to nature. I love the fact that this documentary has also reached reached several international publications and glad South Africa's talent is getting recognized more.

Netflix really has a good selection of series and movies ect to watch. Like the old HBO used to be. If you saw who was presenting it you already knew you had to watch it. They talked about making the game 'the last of us' into a series! sounds awesome
