The much-loved story of Craig Foster's special bond with an octopus in Cape Town's ocean has been recognised at the Oscars.

My Octopus Teacher is the story of free diver and filmmker Craig Foster's unique friendship and interaction with a female octopus he discovered while diving in the waters off Simonstown.

Shot over eight years, with 3000 hours of footage, the movie documents Fosters own rediscovery of a sense of wonder and connection to the natural world that he had almost lost as he struggled with burnout and depression.
