Experiencing the Galápagos Through a Phone Call Home

Watch as filmmaker Andrew Norton recounts his travels to the Galápagos Islands. A phone call to his family narrates the footage he shot, while quirky animations illustrate some of the things he learned or discovered along the way—such as Darwin riding a tortoise and marrying his cousin.

The Short Film Showcase spotlights exceptional short videos created by filmmakers from around the web and selected by National Geographic editors. We look for work that affirms National Geographic's belief in the power of science, exploration, and storytelling to change the world. The filmmakers created the content presented, and the opinions expressed are their own, not those of National Geographic Partners.
