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.


Cara Cusumano is the Senior Programmer for the Tribeca Film Festival, where she has programmed feature narrative and documentary films since 2008. Prior to Tribeca, she programmed for the Hamptons International Film Festival, including curating HIFF’s signature Conflict & Resolution competition and Oscar-qualifying shorts program, and has also worked with film organizations including the Abu Dhabi Film Festival, the Brooklyn International Film Festival, IFP, POV, and Chicken & Egg. 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.
