Serengeti Rules, The 1x51, 1x84

“…remarkable… [Nicolas] Brown rewards audiences with a film that happily weds the scientific and the cinematic.” — The New York Times

Jackson Wild Media Awards 2019: Best Science in Nature Film (Long Form) and Best Impact Film (Long Form)

Academy Award-winning 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, 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.
