Event Description

Armored stag beetles meet in epic duels. Raindrops pelt a city of anthills. Marching caterpillars form a glorious parade.

Employing special magnifying cameras, this sparely narrated nature doc — one of the most successful, and still one of the best — reveals the insect world within a single meadow to be brimming with amazement, adventure and beauty. “There isn’t a dull moment here,” wrote Variety. “This all-natural ensemble piece delivers more dramatic punch than many a human pic.”

Hang around after the film for a presentation and Q&A with the Academy of Natural Sciences featuring live invertebrate specimens!
