THE CRIMSON WING: MYSTERY OF THE FLAMINGOS (United Kingdom, 2008, 75 min.)

In a remote and forgotten wilderness, one of nature’s last great mysteries unfolds: the birth, life and survival of a million crimson-winged flamingos. Against a dramatic backdrop of never-before-filmed landscapes, these secretive birds struggle to survive and prevail over danger and fate. The inspiring story, set in the extraordinary “other world” of Lake Natron in northern Tanzania, the cradle of humankind, reminds us: here on earth is a universe waiting to be discovered. Directed by Matthew Aeberhard and Leander Ward. Produced by Paul Webster, Leander Ward and Matthew Aeberhard. Best Music Award Winner.

Program introduced by Merove Heifetz, Chief Operating Officer, Wildscreen USA.
