2016 ACFF GREEN FIRE AWARD
Filmmaker: Graham Townsley
Follow the extraordinary scientific odyssey of one of America’s greatest living thinkers, E.O Wilson. Often dubbed “a Darwin for the modern day,” his lectures at Harvard were picketed and he was even physically attacked on stage at a scientific conference, all because he suggested that human nature could be studied scientifically. Time has borne Wilson out, and sociobiology has become a well-established and accepted part of the humanities. The film culminates in a rapturous finale about his work in the great national park of Mozambique, Gorongosa, once torn apart by civil war, now being restored to its former glory.
