"Learning To See" explores photography, art, entomology, travel, and the rainforest, and its' message goes deeper than its' visual richness. The film asks what inspires a person to change and why it's important to preserve the natural world that we inhabit. It underscores the fact that we as human beings have a much greater capacity to see and understand our world if we would just open our eyes and see what is in front of us. Written by Anonymous

Exquisite world within a world
18 October 2017 | by rainyday_sitterSee all my reviews

'Learning to See' gives so many more reasons to love and preserve rain forests worldwide, as if we needed another. Visually stunning, emotionally compelling, and continuously thought-provoking, the film will surprise even avid followers of rain forest fauna. Hopefully, this will be one piece from which a critical mass of earthlings will be learning to see.
