For 80 million years, birds have ruled the skies, seas and earth. Each spring, they fly vast distances. Each fall, they fly back on the same route. This film is the result of four years following their amazing odysseys, species by species, flying over seas and continents. Long one of France's most respected producers (Academy Award® winners Z and Black and White in Color) and actors (Z, Cinema Paradiso), Jacques Perrin takes on his greatest challenge yet: exploring the mystery of birds in flight. Five crews of more than 450 people were necessary to follow a variety of bird migrations through 40 countries and all seven continents. The result is a film of staggering beauty that opens one's eyes to the ineffable wonders of the natural world.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that birds face peril on land and on the wing. Several are shot, a couple of them are caged, and some are preyed upon by other birds. A Red-Breasted Goose flounders in an oil refinery's effluent and is left behind by the flock in one scene while in another it is implied that a penguin chick is eaten by a scavenger. Young children might be disturbed by the inability of an injured Tern to escape from attacking crabs.
