Hurricane 3D introduces audiences to the strength of one of the most powerful hurricanes in the world: the Atlantic hurricane.
Hurricane 3D gives insight into the science behind this phenomenon, as well as a sense of the visceral impact experienced by those affected. Audiences will learn how hurricanes are monitored to keep people safe, and the ways rescue teams mobilize to help. Discover that, although hurricanes are shatteringly destructive, they play a surprisingly beneficial role in revitalizing earth’s ecosystems.
Filmmakers teamed up with NASA to follow the footsteps of a hurricane, which begins its journey as a sandstorm in Senegal, heads west across the Atlantic, builds momentum, then blows into the jungles of the Caribbean. With winds up to 124 mph, impacting 12 countries in its path, the hurricane is the film’s main character. The supporting cast consists of the men, women, plants and animals that it encounters on its journey.
As Hurricane 3D explores the chaos and disruption of homes and lives, it reveals the amazing stories of emergency management teams and first responders, who bring hope to those living in the path of the hurricane, and the strength of new purpose in their recovery efforts. With visions of resilient nature and rainforests revitalized by the storm, Hurricane 3D captures a timeless cycle of destruction and renewal.
“This stunning display of a natural marvel is a can’t-miss event,” says Craig Mince, theater manager at the IMAX Theater in the Indiana State Museum. “We are excited for area-moviegoers to see this film to learn more about the cycle of hurricanes.”
