Film Synopsis

Bob Schuler’s opus is a gallery at the bottom of the sea, a collection of art sunk into the ooze and muck. It is an undersea necklace encircling the earth, composed of granite cubes and designed to last at least least 50 million years. Tethys is an experimental documentary essay about Schuler's quixotic "around the world ocean burial."
