Mammoths: Titans of the Ice Age
RATED: G | RUNTIME: 45 min. | STUDIO: Giant Screen Films
Titans of the Ice Age transports viewers to the beautiful and otherworldly frozen landscapes of North America, Europe and Asia ten thousand years before modern civilization. Dazzling computer-generated imagery brings this mysterious era to life—from saber-toothed cats and giant sloths to the iconic mammoths, giants both feared and hunted by prehistoric humans. The magic of the giant screen reveals the harsh and beautiful kingdom of these titans: an ancient world of ice, the dawn of our ancestors, a time when humans fought for survival alongside majestic woolly beasts.
Travel across monumental glaciers and sweeping grasslands, rich in life—a Northern Hemisphere whose vast plains resembled the African Serengeti. Roam the mammoth steppe with baby Lyuba, a 40,000 year old female Woolly Mammoth calf recently exposed by the melting Siberian permafrost, now one of the best preserved mammoth mummies in the world. Discover the story of Zed, one of the most complete Colombian Mammoth skeletons ever uncovered, extracted in 2008 from under a Los Angeles parking lot next to the famous La Brea Tar Pits. Witness a time when the hunters became the hunted, where saber-tooths, dire wolves and cave bears ruled untamed continents.
Shot largely in and around the picturesque Rocky Mountains, Yellowstone National Park, Alaska and the Northern Great Plains, Titans of the Ice Age will captivate audiences with a vision of a world inhabited by creatures both familiar and exotic—leading us to consider the possible fates of today’s living mammals. As our climate continues to warm and human encroachment threatens the existence of thousands of species, could the megafauna of our millennia—elephants, bison, tigers—be lost to time like their Ice Age cousins? This highly anticipated film inspires with its bigger-picture perspective on the relationship between climate, the Earth, its resources and inhabitants.
