"March of the Penguins"
Directed by Luc Jacquet
Documentary filmmaker Luc Jacquet brings the real-life
drama of survival in Antarctica to the big screen with this look at the
complex and astonishing lives of emperor penguins. Narrated by Morgan
Freeman, Jacquet's film explores the complex processes that the species
undergoes in order to eat, mate, and reproduce in one of the harshest and
most unforgiving ecosystems on the planet. Through exquisite photography and
a dramatic narrative structure, Jacquet's film "soars as one of the most
passionate and perceptive expressions of interspecies empathy in the history
of the cinema" (Andrew Sarris, New York Observer). 80 minutes.
