Winged Migration

Directed by Jacques Perrin

Over four years producer Perrin (MICROCOSMOS, HIMALAYA) led a crew of over 450 people – including 17 pilots and 14 cinematographers – on a journey following migrating birds through 40 countries across each of the 7 continents. From the Eiffel Tower to John Ford’s Monument Valley, from the distant Polar reaches to the heart of the Amazon, myriad man-made flying machines and innovative camera equipment allowed the filmmakers to get close and capture amazing big screen images of birds in flight. Oscar-nominated for Best Documentary and a box office success both in France and the U.S.
