Andy Mann: From Summit to Sea

Promo code not found for this show. Please try again or call 403.294.9494.

Award-winning filmmaker and photographer Andy Mann combines his passions with purpose as a voice for the world’s oceans, following scientists to some of the most extreme locations on the planet in the hope of inspiring change.   

Mann’s journey from rock climber to ocean storyteller involves some remarkable detours and misadventures that prove that field science can be every bit as thrilling as the climbing adventures of his past. He has dived alongside crocodiles, sperm whales, and sharks and survived near misses with icebergs, all in pursuit of his ultimate goal: to shed light on Earth’s incredible ocean environments and advocate for their protection.   

He now spends over 100 days a year at sea, documenting cutting-edge marine science and telling the story of our rapidly changing planet—covering all seven continents for National Geographic. See Andy Mann: From Summit to Sea live in the Jack Singer Concert Hall with the National Geographic Live series from Arts Commons Presents.

"The importance of those behind the lens cannot be underestimated. Whenever we cast our cameras upon the voiceless, allowing beauty and grace to speak on their behalf, someone, somewhere in the world, who would otherwise never journey to a place as wild as the open ocean, will now dream of it." – Andy Mann

"We can build a beautiful planet. Some of the biggest buildings in the world now are sustainable, beautiful and in harmony with nature. So, my vision for the planet is a place swimming with amazing animals that also has a healthy and vibrant human population." – Andy Mann
