winged migration

this film was bee-YOO-tiful!




I went and saw this movie on Friday night by myself at the ArcLight Theatre in the Hollywood. After a few hiccups with the seating arrangement, I settled into watching this awe-inspiring film filled with migrating birds. At first I didn't think there would be any speaking at all, just music and the sounds of the birds, but after about fifteen minutes into the thing, a voice with a french accent began to explain the migration of the birds.

I don't want to spoil this movie for you, but there's alot more to this film than just seeing birds fly through different weather patterns across different lands. It tugs at your heart and makes you think about our environment as a whole - and how much what we do affects just this one group in the animal kingdom so much - but they retain their beauty and their majesty.... I highly recommend.
