| Travel to the Venezuelan tepuis, African Savannahs, and the rainforests of Borneo, while learning
about the mysterious plants which live there. Discover the beauty and complexity of these fascinating creatures.
The film begins with a broad view of plant evolution, photosynthesis, and nutrition. Only in that context can we appreciate those plants which exhibit the carnivorous syndrome. As we explore 5 continents, we come to understand the incredible diversity of form revealed by the carnivorous plants.
At the same time, we are reminded of the fundamental role plants play in the lives of all other creatures. As many carnivorous plants are threatened with extinction, this documentary also reminds us of the terrible danger posed by man's reckless destructiveness.
The Carnivorous Syndrome in 3D is thus informative, technically innovative, and powerful. But it is above all a sublime portrait of the inventiveness and fragility of nature.
