The documentary El Olvido del Mar, produced by the Spanish company Sintregua Comunicaciones, was presented in preview at the Circle of Fine Arts in Madrid on March 27.

This full-length feature traces the life and work of the Aragonese Odón de Buen, born in Zuera in 1863.

A free- thinker, eminent scientist, naturalist, tireless popularizer of knowledge and father of Spanish Oceanography. Odón de Buen was one of the disciples, both in oceanography and paleontology, of Prince Albert I of Monaco. These two pioneer scientists in oceanography were at the origin of the Spanish Institute of Oceanography in 1914.

Last October, HSH Prince Albert II presented a commemorative plaque during his visit as part of the commemorations of the centenary of the death of Albert I .

The Prince’s Palace and the Oceanographic Museum of the Principality of Monaco, as well as the Embassy of Monaco in Spain, collaborated in the production of the documentary, highlighting the value the heritage bequeathed by Prince Albert I and Odón de Buen.
