Quick Overview

FLIGHT: The Genius of Birds is the first film in Illustra Media's new series THE DESIGN OF LIFE. Each episode explores a different realm of the animal kingdom and the remarkable biological systems that make life on Earth possible. Photographed in North America, England, Peru, Greenland, and Antarctica, FLIGHT probes mysteries and mechanisms of a bird's anatomy, instinct, navigation, and embryology to reveal stunning provisions essential for life in the skies.

You'll marvel at a hummingbird s unique skeletal, muscular, and metabolic systems all vital to its spectacular aerial acrobatics; the endurance and navigational abilities of an Arctic tern as it travels from pole to pole during the longest migration on the planet; the instinctive strategies that enable a flock of 300,000 European starlings to evade predators at break-neck speeds; the elaborate network of a million component parts that make a single feather an aerodynamic masterpiece, and much more.

The poet William Blake wrote that to see an eagle in the air is to observe a portion of genius. In FLIGHT the ingenuity of a bird's behavior and biology showcase unmistakable evidence for design, purpose, and plan. It is evidence best explained by an intelligence that transcends the natural world.

Illustra Media


Illustra Media is a non-profit 501 (c)(3) corporation specializing in the production of video documentaries that examine the scientific evidence for intelligent design. These award-winning films have been distributed throughout the world and translated into more than twenty languages.

Working closely with the Discovery Institute and an international team of scientists and scholars, Illustra Media has produced a series of films which have helped define both the scientific case for design–and the creative limitations of blind, materialistic processes like Darwinian evolution. These documentaries include Unlocking the Mystery of Life, The Privileged Planet, and Darwin’s Dilemma.

Illustra Media is based in Southern California. It is comprised of a team of writers, cinematographers, animators, and producers, each committed to the search for truth about the origin of life and the universe.
