Serengeti Rules

"I had never seen anything like this before…" Abramorama has debuted the official trailer for a profound documentary titled The Serengeti Rules, which first premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival last year. This fascinating, beautiful nature documentary is about a group of scientists in the 1960s who traveled all over our planet, "driven by an insatiable curiosity about how nature works." After traveling to some of the most remote and spectacular places on Earth, they discovered a single set of rules that govern all life. "This film is about more than the ecology of place. Collectively, the fact that scientists have found nature working the same way all over the planet tells us that Bob (and the others) discovered something fundamental about life. Predators and keystone species may become our greatest allies in the coming fight to protect our biosphere."

Here's the official trailer (+ poster) for Nicolas Brown's documentary The Serengeti Rules, on YouTube:

Passion Pictures and HHMI Tangled Bank Studios present one of the most important but untold science stories of our time—a tale with profound implications for the fate of life on our planet. Beginning in the 1960s, a small band of young scientists headed out into the wilderness, driven by an insatiable curiosity about how nature works. Immersed in some of the most remote and spectacular places on Earth—from the majestic Serengeti to the Amazon jungle; from the Arctic Ocean to Pacific tide pools—they discovered a single set of rules that govern all life. Now in the twilight of their eminent careers, these five unsung heroes of modern ecology share the stories of their adventures, reveal how their pioneering work flipped our view of nature on its head, and give us a chance to reimagine the world as it could and should be. The Serengeti Rules is directed by filmmaker Nicolas Brown, his first theatrical documentary after making numerous nature docs for TV previously. This premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival last year. Abramorama will open Brown's Serengeti Rules in select theaters starting May 10th. For more, visit the official website.

Nothing new for me here as I watch Planet Earth on BBC each week and love it. Love the guy narrating. Great show.

I have no doubts that nature will find a way to survive. And I hope those idiotic primates, called humans, will eventually overcome their backwood mentality related to life and to others and will survive what nature has, in the long run, in store for all of us...

Looks fascinating and beautiful. But how are we using this long-collected scientific knowledge and epiphany about 'how life on earth works' to preserve & protect what we have? To me, we simply are not. But maybe (doubtfully) this film will prove otherwise.
