March of the Penguins

  • Seward Park 192 East Broadway New York, NY, 10002 United States (map)

There's no place like Seward Park..on a summer evening

At the end of each Antarctic summer, the emperor penguins of the South Pole journey to their traditional breeding grounds in a fascinating mating ritual that is captured in this documentary by intrepid filmmaker Luc Jacquet. The journey across frozen tundra proves to be the simplest part of the ritual, as after the egg is hatched, the female must delicately transfer it to the male and make her way back to the distant sea to nourish herself and bring back food to her newborn chick.

Sponsored by the Seward Park Conservancy, Henry Street Settlement, and Metrograph.
