Family Flicks Film Series: March of the Penguins

Sunday Jul 21, 2019 11:00 AM This is a past program

Recommended for ages 6+

This beloved nature documentary, narrated by Morgan Freeman, is a story of survival, perseverance, love, and family in the frozen Antarctic. Coproduced by the National Geographic Society, the film follows the emperor penguins on their annual perilous trek across miles of icy tundra. Its spirit and sense of adventure emanates directly from these adorable, flightless birds straight to the core of animal lovers. (2005, dir. Luc Jacquet, 35mm, color, 80 min.)

The Family Flicks Film Series is copresented by the UCLA Film & Television Archive. Matinee screenings for families and film buffs, featuring new and classic films from around the world.
