Madagascar:
A World Apart

WRITTEN, PHOTOGRAPHED & EDITED BY ANDREW YOUNG

Madagascar is a world unto itself, where evolution has taken the familiar and created the bizarre. Split off from Africa since the age of dinosaurs, Madagascar's isolation gave rise to countless plants and animals that exist nowhere else. This film presents an extraordinary cast of characters, including chameleons of every color and size, a panther-like carnivore called a fossa, and the charismatic lemurs for which the island is famous. From lush tropical rain forests to the sun-scorched spiny desert, this Living Edens portrait is an unforgettable journey though the natural wonders of this unique island.
