Abstract:

Land of the eagle is the story of how North America was discovered is told through the eyes of the Native Americans and the European newcomers. A magnificent ensemble of paintings, photographs, wildlife films, and Native Americans voicing the words of their ancestors. In Spirits of the jaguar amid volcanoes, jungles, deserts, and reefs, we enter the legendarykingdoms of the Mayas and Aztecs where each creature, from monkey to snake, turtle to flamingo, is ruled by the all-powerful spirit of the jaguar.

Wild South America explores the rich and unique wildlife that inhabits the diverse landscapes of the vast South American continent. Using new camera techniques, including infrared night vision cameras, rarely seen animals are revealed. Life in the freezer explores the Earth's coldest continent, Antarctica.
