  • Flying Monsters
  • Documentary Film Rated G
  • 40 minutes
  • Film Synopsis:

    For thousands of years, humans have believed that there were once flying monsters. But did they really exist beyond our nightmares? On October 10, SCI will explore this question with the opening of Flying Monsters, a new adventure film from award-winning Atlantic Productions, in association with Sky 3D, and distributed by National Geographic Entertainment. The film uses CGI technology to immerse audiences in a prehistoric world inhabited by pterosaurs, flying vertebrates with a wingspan of up to 45 feet that lived alongside dinosaurs. Flying Monsters was produced by filmmaker Anthony Geffen and narrated by veteran filmmaker and renowned naturalist Sir David Attenborough.

  • Film Synopsis:

    Get closer to the iconic predator we love to fear – the Great White Shark. You’ll feel as though you’re inside a shark cage and witnessing Great Whites leaping out of the water. Shot on location in South Africa, New Zealand, Mexico and California, this film shows you the truth behind the mythic creature forever stigmatized by its portrayal in the world’s first blockbuster movie, “Jaws.” 

    You’ll be amazed by researchers who tag Great Whites by simply holding their breath and free diving alongside massive sharks.
