Clearly illustrates how species on this planet are interdependent on one another for survival.
The evolution of a fig tree in Africa and its only pollinator, -the fig wasp. This film takes us through a journey of intertwining relationships. It shows how the fig (queen) tree is life sustaining for an entire range of species, -from plants, to insects, to other animals, and even mammals. These other species are in-turn life-sustaining to the fig tree itself. It could not survive without the interaction of all these different creatures and the various functions they perform. This is one of the single greatest documented (on video) examples of the wonders of our natural world; the intricacies involved for survival and ensuring the perpetual existence of species. It shows us how fragile the balance is between survival and extinction. Shot entirely in 16x9 widescreen high definition, this is arguably the best cinematography ever produced/shot. This film uses techniques never done until now; with technology never before available. This documentary should win multiple awards, as people will see. Highly recommended.
