Cousteau Weekend, Calypso Adventure: Episode 2, Calypso’s search for Atlantis
The Cousteau Weekends are back for 2019.
Every weekend until March 8, 2019 we will upload a Cousteau documentary that will be available for free for all during one week. This new collection of Cousteau classic movies is centered around Calypso’s adventure across the world. We have therefore specially chosen 8 episodes for you which best illustrate the adventure the Cousteau Team aboard their legendary boat: the Calypso.
Last week you joined us for our first film “Deeper, Further, Longer.”
A beautiful fresco of the Cousteau adventure from the point of view of the Captain, a film that tells the story of a life, a man and a boat that allowed us to see our world from another eye
Calypso’s search for Atlantis 1
Captain Cousteau, his son Philipe and the Cousteau Team on board the Calypso go at the heart of a legend that has amazed men for millennia: in search of the mythical city of Atlantis, the terrestrial paradise described by Plato.
In myth we store our oldest memories, journey to our beginnings, walk the streets of towns fallen to rubble a thousand years before we were born. anchored at Dia, a small bare island off the North coast of Crete the Calypso too will make such a journey, backward into time.
It is now quicker and easier for you to support the work of the Cousteau Society. Equipe Cousteau and the Society are dedicated to the protection and improvement of the quality of life for present and future generations. It’s people like you who allow us to do our work. Your donations make you part of a grand movement of men and women who take action around the world.
We thank you for your generosity. Without all of you, nothing would have been and will ever be possible.
