Description

FUN FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY – AND FREE!

*All screenings are on a first come-first served basis for registered ticket holders. There will be a standby line in the event of no-shows. Please be at the theatre at least 10 minutes before the start of your film. Latecomers will not be admitted once the film has started.*

Filmmaker Luc Jacquet returns to the Antarctic to revisit the Emperor Penguins who call the frozen continent home. A decade after making his Academy Award® winning March of the Penguins, Jacquet spent two months shooting in the Antarctic winter using the new technology of 4K cameras, airborne drones, and under-ice diving to show the astonishing lives of these mysterious creatures in an entirely new light. The film tells the story of two penguins, a father and son, as they face and overcome the almost unimaginable challenges of life in this hostile land. Introduction by actress Sharon Lawrence (Shameless, Queen Sugar, NYPD Blue). Q&A following with Sara Mandel, aviculturist (bird expert) in charge of the June Keyes Penguin Habitat at Long Beach’s Aquarium of the Pacific, moderated by Lawrence.

The EARTH FOCUS ENVIRONMENTAL FILM FESTIVAL is a full-day event that will also showcase green organizations in Los Angeles that include Heal The Bay, River LA, Sierra Club, Citizens’ Climate Lobby, Project Save Our Surf and L.A. Works with tables upstairs in the mezzanine area at the Laemmle’s Monica offering important environmental educational information and volunteer opportunities to attendees.

All films are unrated and there is no age limit for any of the films featured in the EARTH FOCUS Environmental Film festival. It's a good idea to arrive about 30 minutes prior to the start of the film. Admission is limited to this film screening only.
