【Oscars】 South African filmmaker Craig Foster rewarded for My Octopus Teacher

“My Octopus Teacher,” the tale of an eight-limbed creature and her human companion, has won the Oscar for best documentary, AP reports.

Ten years in the making, “My Octopus Teacher” began as a personal video project by South African filmmaker Craig Foster to rekindle his connection with nature by observing an inquisitive female mollusk while free-diving near Cape Town.

Foster said his relationship with the octopus taught him about life’s fragility and our connection with nature, and even helped him become a better father.

For the Oscar, “My Octopus Teacher” beat out “Collective,” “Crip Camp,” “The Mole Agent” and “Time.”
