Turtle: New Docu of Incredible Journey

Nick Stringer’s award-winning documentary, “Turtle: The Incredible Journey,” follows the life and migration of a loggerhead turtle from hatching to maturity and a return to its original Florida nesting grounds.

The docu, narrated by Miranda Richardson, is released in both standard theatrical formats and 3D (in selected locations). 

The loggerhead turtle, a threatened species, has one of the longest, most difficult migratory patterns of any marine animal. Sea turtles newly hatched on the East Coast of the United States (usually in Florida) make their way from the sand into the ocean, and then begin a voyage that can span the entire Atlantic Ocean, only to return decades later to that same beach.

Filmmaker Nick Stringer follows the loggerhead turtle on an adventure of more than 9,000 miles. It’s fascinating to observe this long and risky journey, which is guided only by instincts.

Stringer and his sharply observant camera crew spent two years following loggerhead turtles on their trips across the ocean.  As a result, they have captured on film the remarkable life cycle of a creature that struggles to survive in an increasingly harsh environment.
