The Bloop (Cara Cusumano | USA | 7 min.)
In August of 1997, an unusual ultra-low frequency sound was detected emanating from a point 1,500 miles west of the southern coast of Chile. It was recorded by hydrophones located 5,000 miles apart, making it the loudest unidentified underwater sound ever recorded. It lasted for one minute and was never heard again.

She frequently serves on festival juries and panels, among them CPH:DOX, SANFIC, Silverdocs, Docville, Nordisk Panorama, and the Nantucket Film Festival, and is a member of the nominating committees for the Cinema Eye Honors, the International Documentary Association Awards, and the Gotham Awards.
