'The film by Director Luc Jacquet follows the winter migration of the emperor penguin, and tells a tale of legendary proportions, portraying the strange, spectacular destiny of powerful and emotionally-involving characters, rich in courage and humour, mystery and manifest drama.

Emperor Penguins in their thousands abandon the deep blue security of their ocean home and clamber onto the frozen ice to begin their long journey towards traditional breeding ground - in a region so bleak, so extreme, it supports no other wildlife at this time of year. Yet the penguins battle the threat of blizzards, gale force winds, cold, leopard seals and giant petrels before the chicks are ready to take their first faltering dive into the deep blue waters of the Antarctic.'

Vilma says, "We are hoping to fill the whole theatre with friends and family and have lots of fun while raising much needed funds for NATURE.

We need everyone's support. Please join us with your friends and family!"
