AFRICA: KALAHARI (UK, 2013, 59 min.)

Winners from the 2013 Jackson Hole Wildlife Film Festival

Presented in conjunction with the exhibition, "Wilderness 50 Years 1964-2014" at the National Musuem of Natural History.

Washington, D.C. Premiere Nature’s ingenuity is fully revealed by the animals seen living in Africa’s extreme southwestern deserts. New and unusual behaviors are uncovered that ensure survival against the odds – no matter how tough it gets. In the Namib, the world’s oldest desert, spiders wheel to escape predators and a desert giraffe fights to defend his scant resources and a chance to mate in one of the greatest giraffe battles ever filmed. In the Kalahari scrublands, a wily bird outsmarts a pack of meerkats, supposedly solitary and belligerent black rhinos get together to socialize and giant insects stalk flocks of birds. Produced by Hugh Pearson for the BBC Natural History Unit, Discovery, BBC Worldwide, France TV & CCTV. Winner, Best Animal Behavior Program and Best Limited Series.

Introduced by Flo Stone, Founder, Environmental Film Festival in the Nation’s Capital.
