The Animal Cities of South Georgia
Sir David Attenborough's first foray into IMAX has produced 40 minutes of the most stunning giant-screen footage ever shot of animals in the wild. From the dramatic to the comical, Survival Island follows the magical return each year of animals to the sub-Antarctic island of South Georgia. The island, the only land for thousands of square miles suitable for breeding, hosts half the word's population of elephant seals (up to 6,000 on one beach), 500,000 penguins, the world's largest colony of albatross and receives about 2-million southern fur seals which breed there annually. King of the beach are the 20-foot-long bull elephant seals - impossible to ignore!
Survival Island was filmed in the IMAX format and exhibited in IMAX theaters worldwide. This video version is digitally mastered from the original 70MM film elements with the sound components specially mixed and mastered to produce the highest quality Dolby Surround soundtrack.
