tells the true tale of emporer penguins and their annual journey to breed their young. They are birds, but they do not fly. They are aquatic animals, but this time they will not swim. Instead, they walk - marching day and night in single file 70 miles into the darkest, driest and coldest continent on earth. Narrated by Morgan Freeman, March of the Penguins is an amazing, awe-inspiring, all ages, true-life tale touched with humor and alive with thrills. Breathtaking photography captures the transcendent beauty and staggering you-are-there drama of devoted parent penguins who, in the face of the fierce polar winter, take turns guarding their egg and trekking to the ocean in search of food. Predators hunt them, storms lash them. But the safety of the adorable, fuzzy chicks makes it all worthwhile. So follow the leader ... to adventure! (2005; rated G; run time: 80 min.)
