This is the second screening of this popular documentary. This eco documentary can change how we view the world. No longer will we see species as isolated members of ecosystems but as genetically connected members of a rich interacting community. Can an entire landscape be changes by changing one gene in one plant or animal? Thirty years of interdisciplinary research says yes, and this film follows the scientific journey that came to that conclusion.
