BBC Earth’s Wild Africa 3D
Where water brings nature to life...
This new giant screen film, produced by the award-winning filmmakers BBC Earth and Giant Screen Films, takes audiences across, over and through the magical realms of the wildest places left on earth. From the highest snow-covered mountains in Kenya, along great rivers, into steamy rainforests and wide-open savannahs, Wild Africa 3D reveals the striking contrast of stunning deserts beside wild oceans and the sunlit abundance of the coral reefs. Water, the interconnecting force of this kingdom, serves as a guide, shaping wild Africa and conjuring up life wherever it journeys.
Through the magic of 3D technology, the audience flies along the Great Rift Valley following the twisting rivers to discover a family of elephants on their epic search for water. Other animals featured include hungry crocodiles as they wait at the water holes for the annual wildebeest migration on the savannahs of the Serengeti; a family of mountain gorillas in the forests of Rwanda and thousands of flamingos performing an extraordinary mating display in the volcanic Lake Bogoria.
The crew captured footage in 30 locations, transporting tons of camera equipment across 13 countries, over the course of nearly two years. The result is an immersive cinematic experience that is breathtakingly beautiful – especially when shown with the Aquarium’s new IMAX with Laser projection system.
