Turtle: The Incredible Journey is a critically-praised, award-winning film that follows the life and migration of a loggerhead turtle from hatching to maturity and a return to its original Florida nesting grounds.

The loggerhead turtle, a threatened species, has one of the longest and most difficult migratory patterns of any marine animal: Sea turtles newly hatched on the East Coast of the United States (usually in Florida) make their way from the sand into the ocean, and then begin a voyage that can span the entire Atlantic Ocean, only to return decades later to that same beach.

This breathtakingly beautiful documentary chronicles the heroic and harrowing journey that emperor penguins make amid subfreezing temperatures and violent snowstorms at the South Pole in order to mate. It's a scientific enigma that these flightless aquatic birds leave, at summer's end, the watery element that is most favorable for their survival to travel hundreds of miles to engage in their annual mating ritual on treacherous Antarctic ice floes.

With a determination that rivals that of the animals he documents so impressively, biologist and filmmaker Luc Jacquet spent more than a year documenting the emperor penguins' epic struggle not just to reproduce, but also to survive the March Of The Penguins.
