The wolves featured in this short live in a shelter and have never known life in the wild. But you would never know that by looking into their eyes or listening to their howls, which express a connection to a deep, abiding and mysterious place that has no link with captivity.
This film is a great way for children to learn about the birds and the bees — literally. Wings of Life is the story of pollination, an ongoing dance between flowers and the bees, bats, hummingbirds and butterflies that are essential to life on earth, particularly for humans. Filmed in stunning slow motion by director Louis Schwartzberg, this documentary captures unforgettable images of these creatures. But it’s not just about dazzling cinematography, this is also a cautionary tale about how these pollinators are losing habitat and suffering from other human-caused environmental stresses that are putting them — and us — in peril.
