The Perpetual Guardian Planetarium, Otago Museum will be screening "Humpback Whales" at 11.30am daily from Friday 21 to Sunday 30 April. Narrated by two-time Golden Globe® nominee Ewan McGregor, this film is an extraordinary journey into the mysterious world of one of nature's most awe-inspiring marine mammals.
Set in the spectacular waters of Alaska, Hawaii and the remote islands of Tonga, this ocean adventure offers audiences an up-close look at how these whales communicate, sing, feed, play and take care of their young. Captured for the first time with IMAX® 3D cameras, and found in every ocean on Earth, humpbacks were nearly driven to extinction 50 years ago, but today are making a slow but remarkable recovery.
Join a team of researchers as they unlock the secrets of the humpback and find out why humpbacks are the most acrobatic of all whales, why they sing their haunting songs, and why these intelligent, 55-foot, 50-ton animals migrate up to 10,000 miles round-trip every year.
We wish to thank Jackson Hole WILD for their support in making this film available to Dunedin audiences as part of the Inaugural Wild Dunedin Film Festival.
