Produced by Bookend Trust
Category(ies) as a finalist: Marian Zunz Emerging Filmmaker
Giant prehistoric spiders the size of dinner plates seek kinky love in the dark, and a biologist and a cameraman put everything on the line to catch them in the act. At 7 inches, the Tasmanian Cave Spider is a holdover from the first age of the dinosaurs with a very kinky love life. The quirks of over 200 million years of evolution are shown via a 24-year research project and 2 years of subterranean filming of arachnid love. "16 Legs: Spider Love" looks at the challenge, humor and science of capturing something never before filmed, against all the odds!
