Director/co-writer Luc Jacquet's astonishing documentary follows one year in the life of an emperor penguin flock—and one couple in particular—as they waddle hundreds of miles across the frozen wastes of the treacherous Antarctic on their annual journey to mate. Narrator Morgan Freeman guides us through almost every major life experience that these flightless birds experience-from birth to death, from dating to mating, from comedy to tragedy—every moment of which is a fight for survival against predators and ice floes alike. Academy Award winner for Best Documentary Feature.
