Filmmaker known especially for his documentary, March of the Penguins

For me, Tara is a mixture of  dream and science: the dream of distant horizons, a perfume of adventure, the promise of uncharted territory.  And science, the kind I love, with people who set out to explore and observe, who immerse themselves in the quest for knowledge. Tara brings in her wake a spirit of achievement and exploration, already shown by the expeditions of Endeavour, Astrolabe,  Vostok and Pourquoi Pas. Each boat has a personality, and tells a story. Tara is my favorite.
