A Luc Jacquet Retrospective
Presented with theВ Cultural Services of the French Embassy
Emperor penguins overcome formidable obstacles to return to their breeding grounds for mating season in this Oscar-winning film by Luc Jacquet. It tells the story of one year in the life of a flock – focusing on one couple in particular – as they trek across the Antarctic on a journey that invokes almost every major life experience: from birth to death, from dating to mating, from comedy to tragedy, and from love to fighting for survival. Written and directed by Luc Jacquet. Produced by Yves Darondea, Christophe Lioud and Emmanuel Priou. 2006 Oscar Winner for Best Documentary Film.
Introduction and discussion with Oscar-winning filmmaker Luc Jacquet follows screening.
