IMAX: Tropical Rainforest offers viewers rare glimpses of the jungle environments of French Guiana, Costa Rica, Australia and Malaysia. More of a visual tone poem than an educational documentary, footage ranges from extreme closeups of tiny plant and animal life to broad vistas of the rainforest canopy. The 40-minute film also features the baritone voice of Trinidad native Geoffery Holder (Punjab in "Annie") providing narration, and a closing finale by Ladysmith Black Mambazo, the noted South African men's choir. Originally released to IMAX theatres in 1992, this 1999 video release gives viewers the opportunity to travel to one of the earth's most diverse environments and witness the broad spectrum of colors and sounds found there. The films contrast the lush, primeval ecosystem teeming with diversity against the rapid destruction, acre by acre, by monied interests. Viewers join scientists and researches as they explore an almost untouched ecosystem arising from 400 million years of evolution.
