Thanks to IMAX Melbourne, I managed to see “PENGUINS 3D” which is a documentary about the King penguin which is the second largest penguin in the world, only second to the Emperor penguin. Penguins are my favourite animal, and so I was delighted to be invited to see this film.
Narrated by David Attenborough, the film follows a King penguin family on South Georgia Island, affectionately known in the documentary as “Penguin City“. Here we follow the courtship, the life, obstacles, the threats and the survival of the King penguin.
This film is a fantastic documentary and an eye-opener for those that believe that penguins are just warm and fuzzy creatures, when in actual fact they are resilient, strong and amazing survivors. I found myself jumping and wanting to cover my eyes when predators would edge close to the penguins, and the music seemed to help with the suspense, even though it is a documentary! Just because it’s a documentary, doesn’t mean it can’t be exciting.
Whether you already know your penguin facts, or want to learn about these beautiful creatures, I highly recommend checking out this film which is exclusive to IMAX! So make sure you hop on down to an IMAX cinema near you, as this is a great documentary.
