A tribute to Albert Falco

On the Occasion of World Ocean Day

He wrote the most glorious pages of the history on underwater exploration. His name is forever associated with that of Jacques Cousteau, who confessed: "I asked him to be my eyes under the sea...”.

This man is Albert Falco, former captain of the Calypso. At 85, a few months before his death, Falco opened the doors of his memory to perpetuate the mission he had given to men of the Calypso: that of opening the eyes of the public on the issues and unmatched beauty of the universe at great depths.

The programme includes a preview screening of the documentary Albert Falco, l’Océanaute by Sylvain Braun, on the ocasion of World Ocean Day, Friday 8 June 2012, at 19:30.

In his film, Albert Falco invites us to share the strongest moments of his life, pieces of history that bind men and oceans together.
