This passionate film emphasizes our connection with – and responsibility to – the complex ocean world. The film’s stunning imagery immerses audiences in coral reef communities – among familiar dolphins, sharks and rays but also lesser-known species, such as crocodile fish, colorful nudibranchs and delicate flatworms.
Unafraid. Unstoppable. Unbelievably cute. Follow a clan of Meerkats through their adventures in the Kalahari Desert. You’ll see their triumphs, tragedies and how by working together as a family unit they ensure each other’s survival in the unforgiving desert.
220 million years ago, dinosaurs were beginning their domination of the Earth. But another group of reptiles was about to make an extraordinary leap: Pterosaurs were taking control of the skies, and the story of how and why these mysterious creatures took to the air is more fantastic than fiction.
