Join us for another extraordinary season of National Geographic Live at Benaroya Hall! Our 20182019 Seattle Speaker Series crisscrosses the globe and even reaches back through time, from the imposing pyramids of ancient Egypt to thousands of tiny moments captured on present-day Ellis Island.

Filmmaker Filipe DeAndrade works to preserve vital animal habitats. Filmmaker Bryan Smith recounts extreme filmmaking field work, from ice climbing to paragliding.
