Four Wings and A Prayer

FOUR WINGS AND A PRAYER is a visually rich and exciting feature-length documentary about one of the world’s most beautiful and mysterious creatures, the Monarch butterfly.


Nowhere in nature is there a more powerful mix of scientific marvel, awesome beauty, and epic struggle for survival. This documentary is a journey into the Monarch’s secret and fascinating world. We visit the spectacular locations it calls home, meet its friends and enemies (including humans in both camps), and fly with it on one of the most inspiring migratory odysseys imaginable.

FOUR WINGS AND A PRAYER was nominated for an Emmy in 2010 for Outstanding Nature Programming; in 2008, the film received three Gemini nominations: Best Science, Technology, Nature, Environment or Adventure Documentary Program; Best Direction in a Documentary Program; and Best Photography in a Documentary Program or Series
