Throughout the last 50 years, penguins have been making experimental & avant-garde films. These films are just now getting the recognition they deserve via the 'Mondo Penguin' organization set up by Dr. Charles Heathrow. Our documentary chronicles briefly the history of penguin experimental film and the steps Heathrow is taking to get people to notice.
We talk to penguin authors & enthusiasts, including Heathrow himself. In addition, all the penguin films shown have been remarkably restored & thawed out from the original icy negatives. See clips from little known penguin films such as 'King of the Ice', 'Tuxedo Drifter', 'The Fish, The Walrus, & My Insecurities' and more!
