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.
Why do we long for contact with others so much? Does Internet really connect people? How can we tell other potential inhabitants of the Universe that we’re here?
Seeking contact with others remains one of the earliest and strongest humans’ needs. By trying to fulfill this need, we invented writing, radio, telephone, and finally – the Internet. We overcame language barriers, problems related to distance, and information flow time. Thanks to modern technologies and communication devices, we develop our civilisation – we are changing the world and ourselves.
Hello Earth will take you on a journey through landmark moments of the history of communication: you will fly over the mythical Tower of Babel, see the first pictograms – paintings in Lascaux Cave, pay a visit to Johannes Gutenberg, visit a surrealistic library, witness the first ever phone call, see the beginnings of the Internet, and launch of the Voyager. You will immerse into Space and – who knows – maybe you will hear someone seeking contact you with?

Fly across iridescent tropical reefs, brush through a cloud of a million jellyfish, visit an alien world where the closer you look, the more you see.
We think of reefs as exotic, distant places with little connection to our everyday world. Yet there are many kinds of reef, each of them a living city beneath the sea, where plants and animals congregate in mutual benefit. They have a parallel existence to ours, distant yet undoubtedly connected.
Each of them is a hotspot of biodiversity as vital to life on earth as the rainforests. Just as the Amazon has its secrets, so too do the reefs. Reefs have been molding and shaping our shorelines, literally forming islands and mountains, for millions of years. Yet in our lifetime, they have come under threat: human activity is altering the chemistry of the oceans. As the sea becomes more acidic, coral, shell and bone begin to crumble.
Shot on location in Palau, Vancouver Island, French Polynesia, Mexico, and The Bahamas, The Last Reef takes us on a global journey to explore our connection with the ocean’s complex, parallel worlds. New underwater 3D technology takes us into the heart of the reef, revealing a habitat more diverse and more colorful than you ever imagined …
What would it mean to us if one of these vibrant wonderlands were to become the last reef?
