The End Game

THE END GAME is a documentary film about coral bleaching caused by global warming. The film was shot during the global bleaching event of 2014-2016, which destroyed coral reefs including those in Hawaii and parts of the Great Barrier Reef. The film covers the causes and effects of bleaching, and follows the work of the late Dr. Ruth Gates, one of the top researchers in the world, to develop a strategy to protect reefs from the coming destruction.
