500 million years ago life left this blue womb and colonized the land, but we are still intricately linked to the ocean. Our climates, coastlines, ecosystems, and economies are tied to the perpetual movement of water between continents. The great ocean currents are the arteries and veins of Planet Earth! This is the story of one particularly fascinating flow – the East Australian Current, a massive oceanic river that stretches the length of Australia’s east coast.
Sea turtles are some of Earth’s most ancient and majestic creatures. For over 100 million years, they have traversed the seas, enduring mass extinctions and playing critical roles in maintaining food webs. But now they face a new threat – humans. It’s time we learned more about these remarkable reptiles. Academy Award winner and turtle conservation champion Russell Crowe narrates the captivating tale of Bunji, a green sea turtle. From the moment her fragile egg cracks below the warm sands of an Australian beach, we join Bunji as she travels through the Great Barrier Reef and thousands of miles into open ocean. After decades, she will migrate with mysterious precision back to the very same beach where she was born and lay the eggs that are the foundation for the next generation. With Bunji as our guide, we will meet an astonishing range of strange and compelling creatures and witness some really wild encounters. All have been filmed in stunning 3D, so you will feel truly immersed amongst massive manta rays, breaching whales, and vibrant clownfish. Sea turtles remind us just how interconnected we all are, and audiences will be moved to cherish these beautiful and vulnerable animals even more.

A lone climber, suspended hundreds of feet in the air, struggles to find the next finger hold, defining progress in inches. The dramatic visuals immerse us in a gripping contest of human determination versus the reality of gravity’s potent grip. Mountain Quest explores the precarious relationship of humanity’s quest to scale some of the world’s highest places, while also revealing the scientific and technological advances that have enabled us to conquer these peaks, exposing the heartbeat of the human soul.
A tapestry of jaw-dropping action, combined with rich STEM content … for example, physics of the real world – how climbing is a tug-of-war between friction and gravity, while skiing involves the same battle of forces in reverse. Educational insights about the engineering of climbing gear and skis, and the aeronautical effects of a wingsuit, are seamlessly integrated with dramatic visuals and action. The film is narrated by Willem Dafoe and was released in early 2018.
Far Northern Australia is a land of extremes. Huge bushfires ravage the ancient landscape in the dry season and the world’s biggest thunderstorms bring torrential rain and flooding in the wet season. These almost Jurassic conditions have created some of the richest wetlands on Earth.
The coast, rivers, and waterholes are haunted by sharks. The plains are guarded by territorial buffalo and venomous snakes but the apex predator here is a living dinosaur the salt water crocodile. They have been on the planet in almost identical form for 200 million years – even surviving the meteor strike that wiped out the rest of the dinosaurs.
Crocodiles are the ultimate predators. They attack with stealth, are extremely aggressive and can grow up to 7 meters in length. Up here, they have even been known to attack and pull fisherman out of boats.
This film will carry the viewers across the whole Top End of Australia, from the wild Kimberly coast through mysterious and rarely seen Arnhem Land and then deep into the world’s oldest rainforest in Cape York.
Come with us on an epic journey through some of the wildest landscapes on Earth as we take you deep into crocodile’s world. Australia’s Great Wild North will be shot in magnificent 8K for IMAX and other Giant Screen theaters. Specialized underwater camera rigs have been designed to get the audience closer than ever before to the most powerful jaws on Earth.
Unique pictures from above. This documentary shows a different angle of people and country during a glide flight above the metropolis.
25 years after the reunion between East and West Germany, this movie shows pictures from different perspectives. Which visions and dreams marked this region? What changed and what emerged from the city’s contentious history? We take a look from above to see the city and its citizens.
The movie unites nature, urbanity, tranquility, and the rush of a metropolis. It unites parks and skyscraper canyons, lake capes and wetlands, curvy courses of rivers, and straight streets. With exhilarating pictures we take a trip through Berlin — from sunrise til sunset.
Due to high quality flight recordings and panorama pictures, we are able to get a glimpse at how the people make this area their home.
