Though he spent most of his professional career as a biologist, documentary filmmaker Luc Jacquet fell easily into making movies. Jacquet had always wanted to be a scientist, but the idea of being cooped up in a laboratory lacked appeal. His seminal film, "March of the Penguins" (2005), a stark but entertaining look at the mating habits of emperor penguins in Antarctica, was embraced by diverse groups of people around the world. The film underscored a career spent traveling to remote parts of the world and enduring unbearable conditions in order to capture exquisite creatures doing remarkable things.
