In a remote and forgotten wilderness, one of nature's last great mysteries unfolds: the birth, life and death of a million crimson-winged flamingos. Against a dramatic backdrop of never-before filmed landscapes, these secretive birds struggle to survive and prevail over danger and fate. This inspiring story, set in the extraordinary 'otherworld' of Lake Natron in northern Tanzania, the cradle of humankind, reminds us: here on earth is a universe waiting to be discovered.

Rotten Tomatoes® Score

Film Threat
Phil Hall

The G-rated film (despite its content shortcomings) works well as an educational vehicle for younger viewers.

Stunning tale of annual migration -- predators included.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that in addition to the portrayal of the flamingos' inspiring way of life in a challenging environment, there are potentially frightening and sad scenes that show the predatory nature of the birds' enemies (storks, mongeese, etc.). In three separate sequences baby chicks are stalked, chased, and killed. On other occasions, the terrain itself victimizes the young birds and some are left behind to die. This is not a light-hearted or humorous look at one of nature's creatures, but a serious, earnest study that patient kids interested in nature will enjoy.
