In February 2009, I was a teaching assistant in UCLA's Field Biology Quarter program. Our class of 15 undergraduates spent 3 weeks conducting original research in Kibale National Park, Uganda. We encountered these remarkable driver ants (Dorylus wilverthi) in the forest every day. When we returned to Los Angeles, I decided to make a short film from the snippets of video I'd captured in Uganda. All video was shot on a Panasonic LX-3 point-and-shoot.
Music is Collin Walcott's "Changeless Faith: The Swarm" from 1977's Grazing Dreams LP (ECM Records). Permission to use the music was kindly provided by Lanny Harrison.
