Wild Films: February Shorts

Tuesday, February 20, 2024 - 6:30pm to 7:30pm
  • Library Hall
Four short films from the 2023 International Wildlife Film Festival, featuring gibbons, bees, butterflies and one wiley wildlife biologist.

Finding Solo
Malaysian-born British filmmaker Myles Storey returns home in search of Solo, a white-handed gibbon believed to be the last of his kind in Bukit Serdang. With help from a primate photographer, local hikers, and Malaysia’s leading gibbon expert, Myles tracks down Solo, witnessing the direct impact that human development has on wildlife.

Scientists discover that the alliance between bees and plants actually depends on an unexpected third partner: microbes! But the chemicals we use in agriculture are putting this ancient partnership at risk.

Making the invisible visible! The ultraviolet patterns on butterfly wings are invisible to the naked human eye, but they’re among the most complex UV-reflecting structures in the animal kingdom.

Eco Hack
An unconventional field biologist wages a high-tech war against ravens in the Mojave — think laser cannons, exploding tortoises, and autonomous drones — in a last-ditch effort to save the desert tortoise from extinction.

WILD FILMS AT THE LIBRARY is a free series of award-winning international wildlife films selected from the International Wildlife Film Festival.
