MORE THAN PENGUINS

Off the coast of South America lie the Falkland Islands, inhabited by 3,000 British people. The 1982 war and continuing conflict with Argentina are as present as the unspoiled landscapes and wildlife. This environment shapes the lives of the Falkland Islanders. In this film, they tell about the pros and cons of their little world and what keeps them there in between minefields and penguins.
