This image of sea rod coral by Dusty Norman is part of the current exhibit ‘Coral Encounters’ at the National Gallery of the Cayman Islands.

The Netflix documentary “Chasing Coral,” will be screened at 7 p.m. Thursday at the National Gallery of the Cayman Islands. It will be followed by a discussion on coral reefs by experts from several local organizations.

The screening is one of several events tied to the current “Coral Encounters” photo exhibition, which runs through Aug. 16.

The 2017 film chronicles divers, photographers and scientists who set out on an ocean adventure to discover why the reefs are disappearing and to reveal the underwater mystery to the world.

Following the film, representatives from the Department of Environment, the Central Caribbean Marine Institute and Cayman Eco Divers will discuss the status of Cayman’s reefs and human impact on them.

Admission is free and refreshments will be served. Seating is on a first-come, first-served basis.
