About the event

All Too  Clear uses cutting-edge underwater drones to explore how quadrillions of  tiny invasive mussels are re-engineering the ecosystem of North  America’s Great Lakes at a scale not seen since the glaciers. The  mussels are trapping nutrients, the building blocks of life, on the lake  bottom. Without nutrients, organisms of all kinds – from the tiniest  plankton to the largest fish – are vanishing, creating vast biological  deserts. The scientific community is divided into those racing to find a  way to control the invaders, and those who see an ironic silver-lining  in the new world created by the mussels – a once-in-a-lifetime chance to  restore an ancient and forgotten native ecosystem.

The  mussels have also had an extraordinary side effect: they’ve made the  lakes clearer than they’ve ever been before. We’ve harnessed this  clarity to film never-before-seen visuals: from dazzling shallow water  worlds that look more like the Caribbean than the Great Lakes, to  previously undiscovered shipwrecks, completely entombed in mussels, 300  feet beneath the surface.

All Too  Clear is an eye-popping exploration of our freshwater world that makes  us all part of the high-stakes mission to breathe life back into the  depths.
