Dazzling computer-generated imagery brings this mysterious era to life; from saber-toothed cats and dire wolves to giant sloths and the iconic mammoths, giants both feared and hunted by prehistoric humans. The films explores the lives and behavior of Lyuba, a 40,000 year old female Woolly Mammoth calf recently exposed by the melting Siberian permafrost, now one of the best preserved mammoth mummies in the world…and the story of Zed, one of the most complete Colombian Mammoth skeletons ever discovered, extracted recently from under a Los Angeles parking lot next to the famous La Brea Tar Pits.
But Titans of the Ice Age is not only a story about mammoths and megafauna, this epoch marks a dynamic chapter in the development of the human spirit, a great test of survival, a “trial by ice” that would compel our ancestors to seek understanding and meaning in nature. These inventions and discoveries — art, language, clothing, the taming of fire — born of the Pleistocene, were tools that defined and civilized the human species. Titans of the Ice Age takes a thoughtful look at the critically important issue of environmental sustainability, adaptation, survival, and extinction, presenting a bigger-picture perspective on the relationship between climate, the Earth, her resources and inhabitants.
Shot largely in and around the picturesque Yellowstone National Park, Titans of the Ice Age will captivate audiences with a vision of a world buried in our ancestral memory, inhabited by creatures of both familiar and exotic — a brief instant in the Earth’s geological history that provokes fundamental questions about why, even as today’s climate shifts, humans remain — but other Ice Age titans were lost.
Time trip to Ice age, diving with great white sharks, immersion into invisible worlds, meeting with the Lemurs in Madagascar…discovery and sensations will be there for all age groups.
