      "Terminal Velocity" and "Blue Planet-The Deep" to Screen this Friday

      The grand finale of Ukiah's popular International Wildlife Film Series
      will feature two films: "Terminal Velocity" and "Blue Planet - The
      Deep." The films will be shown on Friday evening, April 6, at 7 p.m. at
      the Ukiah Civic Center for a suggested donation of $10. The musical
      entertainment for the evening will be provided by Kim Monroe playing
      blues and jazz on electric guitar. Tickets are available at the
      Mendocino Book Company in Ukiah, Leaves of Grass Bookstore in Willits,
      and at the door.
      The film series is a benefit for Redwood Valley Outdoor Education
      Project, a community-supported project of the Ukiah Unified School

      Set in the San Juan Islands off of Washington State, "Terminal
      Velocity" is the story of one man's obsession with the fastest bird on
      earth. It took Ken Franklin 30 years of field study, breeding, and
      training to understand enough about a Peregrine Falcon so that he could
      persuade it to fly alongside a skydiver in free fall. To record the
      extraordinary images of this bold predator at full speed, Norman Kent
      had to wear a heavy slow motion camera on his head, while also matching
      the falcon's speed and lightning-fast movements. For the first time
      ever you can "look into the eye of a falcon as it dives."

      "Blue Planet - The Deep" explores the 20% percent of the ocean that
      lies 500 meters below the surface, a world of perpetual night, huge
      mountain ranges, and extremes of pressure and cold. With lyrical
      photography and music this David Attenborough-narrated film depicts
      strange huge fish with glowing teeth and blinking lights on their
      foreheads, luminous jellyfish, and myriad other creatures that only a
      science fiction writer could imagine. This movie won Best Underwater
      Photography and Best Use of Music at Missoula Montana's prestigious
      International Wildlife Film Festival.
