Award-winning documentary filmmaker, Alvaro Longoria, will direct the film. Javier will provide a voice-over commentary for the film, which also features actor Carlos Bardem. Sanctuary is set up at the Bardem brothers' Pinguin Films and Alvaro Longoria's Morena, one of Spain's most active production houses.

Last month, Javier dived 900 feet in a two-man submarine from a Greenpeace boat to the Antarctic Ocean seafloor of the Antarctic Peninsula to discover the colorful Antarctic ocean-bed world of corral and sponges. The documentary will capture the dive, and Greenpeace reels of Antarctic seascapes and marine life.

Sanctuary is however, “not about the messenger, it’s about the message, and what we need to do to get that message heard by people who really know how to create change,” Bardem said.
