Ocean of Islands (2009)

Film details


Documentary series exploring the remote South Pacific islands. 1 of 6: The home to some of the most curious, surprising and precarious examples of life found anywhere on Earth, from giant crabs that tear open coconuts, to flesh-eating caterpillars that impale their prey on dagger-like claws. The South Pacific's innumerable islands look like pieces of paradise, but the reality of life here is sometimes very different.
