India’s largest environmental film festival, the All Living Things Environmental Film Festival (ALT EFF), is excited to announce the official India premiere of “Deep Rising,” a highly acclaimed documentary narrated and produced by Jason Momoa. The festival, in its 4th edition, will take place from December 1st to 10th, 2023, featuring over 60 films that focus on environmental themes, sustainability, and climate change.
“Deep Rising,” directed by Matthieu Rytz, is a real-life documentary that explores the fate of the planet’s last untouched wilderness—the deep ocean. The film sheds light on the imminent threat faced by the deep ocean due to plans by a secretive organization to allow massive extraction of seabed metals to address the world’s energy crisis. Through stunning visuals and compelling storytelling, “Deep Rising” highlights the crucial relationship between the deep ocean and sustaining life on Earth.
The documentary follows The Metals Company, a mining startup, as it navigates challenges such as securing funding, gaining public favor, and obtaining permission from the International Seabed Authority to mine extensive areas of the Pacific Ocean floor. “Deep Rising” serves as a powerful reminder of the urgent need to protect our oceans and preserve the delicate balance of marine ecosystems.
ALT EFF 2023 is proud to open the festival with the India premiere of “Deep Rising,” providing audiences with a unique opportunity to experience this thought-provoking documentary on the big screen. As the festival continues to expand its impact, ALT EFF remains committed to promoting environmental consciousness and inspiring positive change through the art of filmmaking.

Matthieu Rytz, the director of “Deep Rising,” expressed his thoughts on the partnership, stating, “India stands at a fork-in-the-road when it comes to regenerative energy solutions. Right now, the country has a choice to either continue being one of the driving forces pushing for DSM (Deep Seabed Mining), or it could leverage its resources and technological expertise to lead the world forwards and away from this paradigm that has brought us to the brink of environmental collapse. India has the opportunity to be a positive change in the world, which is why we are pleased to partner with ALT EFF 2023 for the India Premiere of Deep Rising.”
