US film institute picks Penguins

Filed under

The documentary film March of The Penguins has been branded a "moment of significance" by a US movie body.

The American Film Institute (AFI) chose six events and trends from 2005 from the US movie and TV industries.

Others included George Clooney's Good Night, and Good Luck, and War of the Worlds.
