As I’ve mentioned before, Antarctica is indeed an arid desert despite the fact that it houses 70% of earth’s fresh water in ice. The majority of Antarctica receives less than 2 inches of rain a year, that’s less than the Sahara desert making it the driest place on earth.

“March of the Penguins” May March To the Oscars

It seems I’ve been talking about this film since I announced it was coming to theaters months ago, I guess that’s because I have. Of 82 documentaries screened it is now one of the 15 chosen for consideration for the Oscars. In January the list will be cut down to 5, I’m confident it will make the cut. It’s the second highest box office grossing documentary ever.
