A penguin named Steve joins millions of fellow males in the icy Antarctic spring on a quest to build a suitable nest, find a life partner, and start a family. None of it comes easily, especially considering he’s targeted by everything from Orca whales to leopard seals along the way. Technically impressive and filled with wonder, this nature documentary is sweet, accessible, and entertaining for all. Content Advisory: Brief scenes of predators eating eggs, chicks, and penguins. After the film, join Emily for a five to ten minute discussion following the film. Ask questions, answers the ones provided, and get to know your fellow moviegoers!
