Apple has announced that it has landed the global rights to the
awe-inspiring documentary feature film “Fathom,” which will premiere
exclusively on Apple TV+ on June 25.
Directed and photographed by Drew Xanthopoulos (“The Sensitives”), “Fathom”
follows Dr. Ellen Garland and Dr. Michelle Fournet, two scientists focused
on the study of humpback whale songs and social communication. As they
embark on parallel research journeys on opposite sides of the world, they
seek to better understand whale culture and communication. The documentary
film uniquely reveals a deep commitment and reverence to the scientific
process and the universal human need to seek answers about the world around
us. From hypothesis to groundbreaking experiences in the field, “Fathom”
showcases the passion, curiosity, collaboration, perseverance and work it
takes for leading scientists to make scientific discoveries.
