E.O. Wilson: Of Ants and Men

92 mins


He coined the term “biodiversity.” Created an entire field of science. Sparked a new understanding of social species and what it means to be human. Became a legendary professor of entomology and champion of conservation. And, after studying the natural world for his 70-year career, he’s still introducing ideas that provoke both acclaim and criticism. E.O. Wilson is also an endearing Southern gentleman with an insatiable curiosity and delight in nature that hasn’t ebbed an iota during his nine decades on Earth.

E.O. Wilson: Of Ants and Men explores the extraordinary life of a man who has spent a lifetime understanding insect behavior while also witnessing staggering environmental destruction and loss of species. Along the way, he’s gleaned insight into the human condition and somehow retained unbending optimism about the future.

This film examines the remarkable life, career and mind of a man with an inexhaustible hunger for knowledge and a one-of-a-kind perspective.
