A new doc is taking viewers on a faraway journey, with a little help from Cate Blanchett.

In the featurette above, which is exclusive to The Hollywood Reporter, a 13-year-old boy named Jawi takes a trip on a boat to learn about caring for his area’s reefs. The vessel, called the Kalabia, serves as a mobile classroom for children to learn abou THEt 500 species of coral and 2,000 species of marine life in the area.
The featurette also gives a behind-the-scenes look at Blanchett recording the narration for the film.
The doc comes from IMAX Entertainment and MacGillivray Freeman Films. It is currently in theaters in Boston, and will roll out in more theaters nationwide in early 2014. The film was directed by Greg MacGillivray and Stephen Judson and produced by Shaun MacGillivray and Mark Krenzian.
