Winged Migration (DVD).
Directed by Jacques Perrin.
Facets Video, Chicago, 2003.
Witness as five film crews follow a rich variety of bird migrations through 40 countries and each of the seven continents. With teams totaling more than 450 people, 17 pilots and 14 cinematographers used planes, gliders, helicopters, and balloons to fly alongside, above, below and in front of their subjects. The result is a film of staggering beauty that Entertainment Weekly hailed as 'Mesmerizing!' and the Los Angeles Times applauded as 'Breathtaking! as lofty as it is exhilarating!'
Open your eyes to the wonders of the natural world as you fly along with the world's most gorgeous birds through areas as remote as the Arctic and the Amazon and as populated as Paris and New York City. See why USA Today found it to be 'one of the most beautiful films to come out this year!'
