The Serengeti Rules

100% Fresh on Rotten Tomatoes
Based on the book by Sean B. Carroll.

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, these 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.

"The great accomplishment of “The Serengeti Rules” is that it directs the viewer to see beauty in the way an ecologist might...In mirroring the gaze of his professorial subjects, Brown rewards audiences with a film that happily weds the scientific and the cinematic."

Teo Bugbee, New York Times

"An upbeat nature documentary about the birth of the "keystone species" theory, and how bringing such species back heals ecosystems."

Roger Moore, Movie Nation

"sounds an alarm, but, unlike most similarly-themed pictures, one which permits a chink of light into the traditionally bleak narrative of man’s impact on the land."

Wendy Ide, Screen International
