Sacred Planet is a 2004 film originally developed for IMAX theaters. Actor Robert Redford narrates as the film provides rare footage of exotic locations, focusing on unique or forgotten areas of the planet. Instead of providing insight into locales that most people already know about, the IMAX film offers a showcase for cultures and landscapes that are more diverse. At the old-growth forests in British Columbia, the lush, peaceful beauty of the primeval forest is just a cover for the many unique ecological features. The island of Borneo features mysteries far below the surface of the waves, as well as colorful tropical jungles teeming with wildlife. In Utah and Arizona, the red rock canyons create striking visuals, almost resembling the surface of Mars. In New Zealand, the beaches feature pristine white sand as far as the eye can see. The film also highlights Namibian deserts, glaciers in Alaska and many more ecological wonders.
