Directed by Luc Jacquet
Rated G, 80 min.
Part of the Sundance Institute Film Series
This breathtakingly beautiful nature documentary is the best of its kind since audiences flocked to Winged Migration. The journey takes us to Antarctica to observe in amazing detail the mating rituals, birth and parenting cycle of the Emperor penguins. Narrated simply by Morgan Freeman, the images of these creatures who mate and raise young in the most environmentally harsh corner of the globe is truly inspiring. The film includes the sometimes brutal life and death struggle against nature and natural predators that all species must endure. Consequently, this fascinating and spirit-lifting film is for everyone except very small children.
