USA 2005 • Documentary • 52 minutes
Directed by Mark Deeble, Victoria Stone

In Africa, the giant fig tree and the tiny fig wasp differ in size a billion times over, but neither could exist without the other. The fig tree provides food for thousands of creatures, from elephants and giraffes, to forest hornbills, monkeys, insects, and fish. Each individual fig is a infinitesimal microcosm of life in which the tiny fig wasp players battle against predators and parasites to fulfill their mission, which is to pollinate a tree whose flowers bloom inside its fruit. This beautiful film is made possible by the patience and skill of two filmmakers, who employ the magic of ultra-macro photography and high definition cameras to tell a wildlife story which has never been told before.
