March Of The Penguins Follows the Migration of Emperor Penguins in Antarctica

March of the Penguins is a beautiful documentary movie filmed in one of the harshest environments on earth, Antarctica. Watching it, I learned a lot about Emperor Penguins not the least of which is that they are handsome, distinguished, humble, brave and devoted. If you enjoy nature documentaries, you will definitely enjoy this film.

"They have wings but they cannot fly."

"They're birds that think they're fish!"

"Every year they take a nearly impossible journey to find a mate."


First screened at the Sundance Film Festival, U.S.A., on January 21, 2005. The theatrical release happened on June 24, 2005.

Why I Love March Of The Penguins (In 109 Words!)

March of the Penguins takes place in Antarctica, one of the harshest environments on the earth. The climate there is the 'darkest, driest, windiest and coldest' you can find with lows reaching 80 degrees below zero and winds of up to 100 miles per hour. Nevertheless, each year the amazing emperor penguins in this love story follow the same migratory pattern in order to find a mate and raise their young. A true endurance test, the journey and the effort of protecting their young is tough and not all of them will make it. This film perfectly documents one of the most amazing creatures on our planet.

      My students love tying a pillow to their waist and trying to walk with a little toy football balanced on the tops of their feet! Helps them understand how hard these little birds work to protect their eggs :)
