On Earth Day, Ottawa residents will have the extraordinary opportunity to immerse themselves in the world of migratory birds with the special screening of Wings over Water at Cineplex Odeon South Keys Cinemas and Landmark Cinemas in Orleans.

Produced with the generous support of Ducks Unlimited Canada (DUC) and narrated by Michael Keaton, this IMAX® film takes audiences on a remarkable journey alongside three families of migratory birds – the yellow warbler, sandhill crane, and mallard.

Spanning from the expansive Prairie Pothole region to the lush landscapes of Costa Rica, the film showcases the awe-inspiring migration journey of these avian travelers. Through stunning cinematography and intimate storytelling, viewers witness the challenges and triumphs of these birds as they navigate across continents.

Wings over Water is not only visually captivating but also highly educational. The film is suitable for audiences of all ages and seamlessly weaves fascinating scientific insights with moments of humor and wonder. Viewers will gain a newfound appreciation for the intricate ecosystems and the vital role wetlands play in supporting migratory birds and wildlife.

Ducks Unlimited Canada’s commitment to conservation is reflected not only in the film itself but also in its distribution. The film is screening in 75 theaters nationwide for the very affordable price of $6.99, with proceeds directly supporting wetland conservation efforts of DUC. Additionally, the film will be available for group and school bookings until May 31st, accompanied by educational resources provided by DUC.

By bringing Wings over Water to audiences across Canada, DUC aims to foster a deeper understanding of the importance of conserving and restoring wetlands. From enhancing water quality to mitigating floods and droughts, these vital habitats play a crucial role in sustaining biodiversity and ecological balance.

Wings over Water offers a poignant reminder of our interconnectedness with the natural world and the imperative to protect it for generations to come.
