Flight of the Butterflies

Director: Mike Slee Year: 2012 Run Time: 44min

What is Flight of the Butterflies? It's a natural history epic. It's a compelling detective story. It's a scientific adventure at its best. It took Dr. Fred Urquhart almost 40 years to discover the monarch butterflies' secret hideaway and prove the most incredible migration on Earth. Following the year-long annual migration cycle of the butterflies, the award-winning production team filmed hundreds of millions of monarchs in their remote overwintering sanctuaries in Mexico in 2011 and again in 2012 and also along their migratory routes from Canada, across the U.S. and into Mexico. The technology of IMAX immerses you in this astounding migration experience.
