The Emperor's Journey

The Emperor's Journey

A Feature film by Luc Jacquet

Produced by Bonne Pioche Cinéma

Release in France : 26/01/2005

    Synopsis

    The story of the emperor penguins and their reproductive cycle is unique. It combines love, drama, courage and adventure and is set in the heart of the Antarctic, the world’s most isolated and inhospitable region.
    This story from the natural kingdom has been perpetuating itself for thousands of years, although man only discovered it at the beginning of the 20th century.
    “The Emperor’s Journey” tells this extraordinary tale.
