Mobile native filmmaker and explorer Mike deGruy is remembered in the film Diving Deep: The Life and Times of Mike deGruy. His wife and filmmaking partner, Mimi Armstrong deGruy, wrote, directed and produced this award-winning feature-length documentary about the irrepressible biologist turned filmmaker.
He was becoming increasingly outspoken as an environmental activist when he died tragically in a helicopter crash in Australia while filming for director James Cameron. The film celebrates his remarkable career but it also highlights what he believed passionately at the time of his death: we are destroying the ocean before we even know what’s there.
Tickets for a reception to meet filmmaker Mimi deGruy and admission to the movie are $50
(Limited to 100 participants). Reception is from 5:30 - 6:30.
General Admission Tickets are $30 in advance and $35 at the door

Proceeds for the event will go to the Dauphin Island Sea Lab Foundation to sustain the Mike deGruy scholarship.
