Today’s top five things to do in Summit County

The beautiful and beautifully made documentary 'Angel Azul' weaves together themes of art and ecology in a feature-length piece that will appear in the upcoming Breckenridge Film Festival, Thursday, Sept. 18, through Sunday, Sept. 21. In 'Angel Azul,' we see Jason deCaires Taylor, an innovative artist and diver, create artificial coral reefs from statues he casts from live models. The film depicts the creation of a particular statue, Angel Azul, from the arduous process endured by the model to the statue’s installation on the ocean floor and the attachment of Gorgonian coral wings that flutter with the tide. These underwater works of art serve at least two purposes: to provide a substrate for new coral reefs and to attract divers, diverting them and their impact from the natural — and endangered — coral tops of the Mesoamerican Reef off the Yucatan Pennisula.
