Australia: Land Beyond Time

bigImage It's more like another planet than another country. The land down under is undoubtedly one of the most diverse of all countries. AUSTRALIA: LAND BEYOND TIME, a new large format film from Living Pictures and Houston Museum of Natural Science, explores how life in this rugged, eroded land has adapted and flourished in a largely arid environment. See how the bounding giant red kangaroo has become more efficient than most athletes. And, how plants and animals cooperate to maximize their chance of survival.
