MARCH OF THE PENGUINS (article first published : 2006-08-1)

The Academy Award winning documentary feature, March of the Penguins which Videovision Entertainment acquired for distribution in South Africa, has been a boxoffice hit worldwide. It has now been released on DVD.

March of the Penguins is one of the most popular films released this year, as it is still showing four months after its cinema release and has continued to attract audience at cinemas despite it being available for rental on DVD.

The documentary charts the remarkable journey made by Emperor Penguins every year as they abandon their ocean homes and clamber onto the frozen ice and to begin a journey into a region so bleak and extreme that it supports no other wildlife during this time of the year. These penguins do this solely driven by the overpowering urge to reproduce and to assure the survival of their species.
