35th Annual Fort Lauderdale International Film Festival’s Closing Day Film

November 22 at 3:00 pm - 6:30 pm

The 35th Annual Fort Lauderdale International Film Festival’s (FLIFF35) Closing Day film on Sunday, November 22, is the World Premiere of Ancient Caves, narrated by Bryan Cranston (The Upside). Made for IMAX and giant screens, director and Emmy-Award winning cinematographer Jonathan Bird (Public Television’s Jonathan Bird’s Blue World) will attend his World Premiere of Ancient Caves.

Ancient Caves brings science and adventure together as the film follows Dr. Gina Moseley, a young paleoclimatologist from the United Kingdom, on a mission to unlock the secrets of the earth’s climate in the most unlikely of places: caves.

Moseley and her team of cave explorers travel the world exploring vast underground worlds in search of stalagmite samples—geologic “fingerprints”—that reveal clues about the planet’s climate history over the last 500,000 years. Their quest leads them to some of the world’s most remote caves, both above and below the water, in France, Iceland, the Bahamas, the U.S. and Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula, where they study how rapidly Earth’s climate can change, and how it has affected human civilization.

Together, they go where very few humans have ever gone before, revealing the incredible lengths scientists will go to study the unknown. During the past billion years, the Earth’s climate has experienced great fluctuations between warm and cold periods. Ice Ages have caused giant glaciers to cover much of the Earth, only to recede, and then come back again.

Only the giant screen can deliver the ultimate experience and adventure of exploring ancient caves around the world to uncover the intriguing history of our planet.

Special Guest:  Jonathan Bird will participate in an audience Q&A after each of the three screenings.

When & Where: AutoNation IMAX 3D at the Museum of Discovery and Science (MODS), on November 22 at 3:00pm and 5:00pm.  There will be a reception outside following each screening Q&A.
