Cine: La marche des pingouins

09/07/2011 - 10/07/2011

Antarctica, where on a good day, it’s -50ºC. Not that the penguins really mind, they’ve adapted. But once they turn five, they more or less give their lives over to continuing the species, which means 70-mile treks to breeding grounds, finding a mate, laying the egg, somehow keeping it warm against the brutal conditions, marching back to an ice break to get food, hiking back to the breeding grounds to feed the little ones, and fending off predators and the elements in the process. It’s an amazing journey, one that has been captured before on camera, but never with the depth or beauty that Jacquet and his team manages here.
