Sea Lions: Life by a Whisker
Between a jagged cliff face and a roaring ocean, lives a colony of Australian Sea Lions. In an environment equally as harsh as it is beautiful, be immersed in a classic coming of age tale guided by one of Australia's most unique, intelligent and playful animals. Take an intimate journey inside the colony where a life of great intimacy, tenderness, and clumsiness, must often give way to a life of great sacrifice and bravery. Dive into the world of a rare Australian Sea Lion pup- and meet the people that are trying to save her species.

Backyard Wildness
Backyard Wilderness will surprise and entertain viewers with the unexpected wonders of nature that lie right in our own backyards. The film displays the stunning array of unique wildlife that live around a suburban home over the course of a seasonal year, revealing the backyard’s inhabitants in rare and breathtaking intimacy. We follow Katie, a young girl, who gradually discovers the intricate secrets that nature has hidden so close to her front door. The joy she finds reminds us that Wi-Fi is not the only connection that matters—you can uncover extraordinary things just by stepping outside.

Turtle Odyssey
Follow the incredible journey of a spry young green sea turtle as it encounters astonishing ocean creatures on the adventure of a lifetime! From hatching along sandy Australian beaches to gliding along ocean currents, watch as this remarkable reptile traverses thousands of miles of open ocean- and then migrates with mysterious precision back to the very beach where it was born. Russel Crowe narrates as researchers trek through these same aquatic wonderlands, encountering the majestic corals of the Great Barrier Reef and breathtaking breaching whales. "Turtle Odyssey" reminds us just how interconnected we all are with the ocean.
