Antarctica in between Saône and Rhône rivers

06-13-2016 Agenda

Enter a 360° hostile and inaccessible universe at the Musée des Confluences with Luc Jacquet's latest exploration of Antarctica. Extreme thrills in a polar oasis!

10 years after March of the Penguins, award-winning director Luc Jacquet returned to the Antarctic Ocean, in Adélie Land, with an impressive crew. He brought back many technical achievements, world firsts and unique images, on or below the ice fields as well as deep into the seabed. 9,000 different species of fish, mollusc, crustacean and corals live there, and some of which were observed for the very first time.

Today, the Musée des Confluences offers Luc Jacquet and his own Wild-Touch NGO a new immersive way to tell a story, in order to raise awareness regarding this habitat and its highly fragile nature. Surrounded by several-meters-high 360° screens, visitors will discover a circuit on and below the ice fields, along Weddell seals and Emperor Penguins. You are sure to be thrilled!
