March of the PenguinsMarch of the Penguins Each winter, alone in the pitiless ice desert of Antarctica, deep in the most inhospitable terrain on Earth, a truly remarkable journey takes place as it has done for millennia. Emperor penguins by the thousands abandon the deep blue security of their ocean home and clamber onto the frozen ice to begin their long journey into a region so bleak, so extreme, it supports no other wildlife at this time of year. In single file, the penguins march blinded by blizzards, buffeted by gale force winds. Resolute, indomitable, driven by the overpowering urge to reproduce, they cross the frozen continent. And that is where the real story of love and dedication, between penguin mates and penguin parents and their chicks, begins. March of the Penguins tells this extraordinary story of love and survival through remarkable photographs taken during the production of the film. Illuminating text elaborates on the film, and a special appendix features behind-the-scenes photos and the story of the film itself, which required 13 arduous months in Antarctica. Penguins.
