Earth: One Amazing Day + Q&A

From BBC Earth Films, the studio that brought you Earth, comes the long awaited sequel – Earth:One Amazing Day, an astonishing journey revealing the awesome power of the natural world. Over the course of one single day, we track the sun from the highest mountains to the remotest islands, from exotic jungles to urban jungles. Astounding breakthroughs in filmmaking technology bring you up close and personal with a cast of unforgettable characters; a baby zebra desperate to cross a swollen river, a penguin who heroically undertakes a death-defying daily commute to feed his family, a family of sperm whales who like to snooze vertically and a sloth on the hunt for love. Told with humour, intimacy, emotion and a jaw-dropping sense of cinematic splendour, this enchanting big screen family friendly adventure spectacularly highlights how every day is filled with more unseen dramas and wonders than you can possibly imagine—until now!

The screening will be followed by a Q&A with the film’s producer Stephen McDonogh.
