Bright, fluffy, curious, jumping, surprising small animals live in the woods of Madagascar. Very long time ago, at the time of dinosaurs, the colony of lemurs got over from Africa on the island where there was no predator. Having bred, lemurs became full owners of Madagascar, hundreds subspecies of the most different flowers and the sizes filled the surprising natural reserve.

To shoot this foty-minute film, the film crew of IMAX had to spend 56 days on Madagascar
Still at all so long ago cinemas of IMAX existed separately from world film distribution. Blockbusters could not be shot with heavy, bulky, expensive chambers of this technically labor-consuming format, to convert cinema in the IMAX version too hurried nobody, therefore the cinema halls which have opened by then showed very limited line of the educational films shot by IMAX chambers by experts of this format specially for demonstration of effect of complete immersion in the picture for which this type of entertainment is famous. School students with pleasure went on such sessions, plunged that into the world of space station, on an ocean floor, appeared in such places where to the tourist it was not possible to come even casually.
