The Telegraph :: New London, Connecticut

Born into slavery in the U.S. before the Revolutionary War, young Richard Allen believes he faces a hopeless future. But after becoming a Christian as a young man and then seeing his master also come to faith, Allen buys his freedom. As a free man, he serves God first as a circuit-riding preacher and then as a pastor in Philadelphia. Even so, he cannot completely leave the injustice of his past behind. When the White senior pastor tells Allen and other Black congregants to "know their place"-which is in the balcony, away from White parishioners-Reverend Allen must make a decision: How will he stand up for his people? When an epidemic strikes Philadelphia, will he risk his own life to help those who treated him as a second-class citizen? "For over 100 million years, sea turtles have traversed the seas, enduring mass extinctions and playing critical roles in maintaining food webs. But now they face a new threat-humans. It's time we learned more about these remarkable reptiles. Academy Award winner and turtle conservation champion Russell Crowe narrates the captivating tale of Bunji, a green sea turtle. From the moment her fragile egg cracks below the warm sands of an Australian beach, we join Bunji as she travels through the Great Barrier Reef and thousands of miles into open ocean. After decades, she will migrate with mysterious precision back to the very same beach where she was born and lay the eggs that are the foundation for the next generation. With Bunji as our guide, we will meet an astonishing range of strange and compelling creatures and witness some really wild encounters. All have been filmed in stunning 3D, so you will feel truly immersed amongst massive manta rays, breaching whales, and vibrant clownfish. Sea turtles remind us just how interconnected we all are, and audiences will be moved to cherish these beautiful and vulnerable animals even more.
