The Penguin Counters

Directed by: Peter Getzels & Harriet Gordon Getzels
Starring: Ron Naveen

Antarctica; Armed with low tech gear and high minded notions that penguin populations hold the key to human survival, Ron Naveen lays bare his 30 year love affair with the world's most pristine scientific laboratory. Famed as a place that wants you dead, this film follows a rag tag team of field biologists to some of the harshest corners of the planet, where they track the impact of climate change and ocean health by counting penguin populations.

//NY Times: ‘'Every shot of wildlife, distant mountains and violent seas is magnificent’’
//The Hollywood Reporter: ''As always, the penguins are the main attraction’'
//Earth Island Journal: ‘’A stunning new nonfiction film, documenting the effects of climate change’’
