Turtle Odyssey Splashes onto the Super Screen

 

Meet Bunji, the star of Turtle Odyssey. This epic underwater film explores the unique lifecycle of an Australian green sea turtle and her incredible journey across the open ocean. The film follows Bunji from a hatchling into adulthood as she swims thousands of miles, meets incredible creatures and has some really wild encounters.

Sea Turtles are some of Earth’s most ancient and majestic creatures. Forover 100 million years, they have traversed the seas, surviving multiple mass extinctions and playing critical roles in maintaining healthy, marine food webs. Not only do these friendly animals captivate us as they peacefully glide through the ocean, but their personal journeys of survival are equally fascinating.These remarkable reptiles will traverse thousands of kilometers of open ocean for as long as 50 years and then, from half a world away, migrate, with mysterious precision, back to the very beach where they were born to lay eggs that are the foundation of the next generation.

With the turtles guiding us, our crews voyaged the same thousands of kilometers to capture the wonders of their habitats. Encountering many kinds of strange and compelling creatures from enormous breaching whales to the coral wonderland of the Great Barrier Reef -all filmed in stunning 3D- so that playful sea lions, tiny sea horses and vibrant clown fish will float right out into the theater. Sea turtles remind us just how interconnected we all are in this amazing world and audiences will be moved to cherish them even more.

 

This film is locally sponsored by Odyssey: casual, modern, and innovative cuisine, drink and service in the heart of downtown Hastings!

Opens September 14!
