One-day wonder

Going Out

INCREDIBLE FOOTAGE From exotic jungles, high mountains and remote islands, filmmakers Richard Dale, Peter Webber and Fan Lixin capture the awesome beauty of nature over the course of one day.

Westport Film Club’s March movie is the BBC’s spectacular ‘Earth: One Amazing Day’, which they will screen tomorrow night (Wednesday), March 7, at 8.45pm.
‘Earth: One Amazing Day’ shows the awesome power of nature over the course of a day on our planet. Directed by Richard Dale, Lixin Fan and Peter Webber, a series of vignettes tracks creatures of all sizes, including napping sperm whales, a sloth on the hunt for love, fighting giraffes, commuting penguins—and that famous clip of the baby iguana on the run from a den of snakes. Robert Redford is the narrator, a fitting choice with his history of environmental activism going back to the 1970s.
Made by BBC Earth films, it the quality of the nature footage is second to none. The high-definition cinematography deserves to be seen in its full glory on the big screen to truly be appreciated. A family-friendly experience, ‘Earth: One Amazing Day’ is 95 minutes long and rated G, with some scenes of hunting and killing in nature.
Tickets and film-club membership can be purchased tomorrow night from 8.30pm at the Cinema. Membership costs €40 for the remaining seven movies, which will include the three upcoming movies in the spring season (March-May) and four in the autumn/winter season (September to December).

Westport Film Club welcomes non-members; guests can pay €10 entry per film. The W Cinema has a range of snacks and a wine licence.
