Where Penguins Fly

Posted on 2/13/2018 12:00:00 AM in What We’re Watching

A note from independent filmmaker David Conover on why he chose this film:

The underwater life of a Gentoo penguin is an exuberant pop of color amongst the unrelentingly white ice desert of Antarctica above. In this short film, the Gentoo soar beak-first like bullets through shallow waters off the coast of Port Lockroy. The bright greens and reds of the undulating seaweed and the clear blue of the water are a boisterous contrast to the rigid and monochromatic landscapes overhead. I love to see scenes of underwater life. It reminds me that there is so much life unseen, yet to be discovered and appreciated.

Produced by Richard Sidey
