Winged Migration Photos

Movie Info

This documentary presents an epic portrait of winter bird migration. Filmed on all seven continents over four years, the footage is brought together into one portrait of a journey that's uniformly arduous for all kinds of different birds. Rather than concentrating on statistics and facts, the film near-wordlessly portrays the sheer physical effort demanded of the birds on their disparate routes. Along the way, we see the many dangers they face, from man-made waste to a group of hungry crabs.

Audience Reviews for Winged Migration

  • Jan 14, 2013
    Winged Migration works because words are kept out of it. Rather than having a mind numbing narration that doesn't really add to the drama, we just have the biirds..and all kinds of them attempting that they had done oodles of time previously in cross crossing the planet as a matter of survival.

    I liked the birds that ran on the surface of the water the best, they were so funny.

    Odyssey three years in the making, amazing experience, impressive and moving, the main focus to portray the grandeur of birds in general. An intimate, poetic portrait that conveys the majesty of all birds.

    A crisp documentary about the migration patters of birds. While this movie deserves all the praise in the world for the amazing cinematograhy, I wshed for a bit more contextual narration to actually learn something about what I am looking at. Still, if you are into documentaries, camerawork, bird or nature you should not miss this one.
