Reel Science Film Series: Phase IV
The Reel Science Film Series returns for its second edition with a new slate of cult science-fiction movies every Friday of May. The series is a collaboration between San Diego Natural History Museum (The Nat), Digital Gym Cinema, and the Film Geeks San Diego. Introduction and contextualized and corrective commentary will be provided by The Nat’s Vice President of Science and Conservation and Curator of Entomology Dr. Michael Wall. Michael Murphy (Manhattan) stars as James Lesko with Nigel Davenport (A Man For All Seasons) as Dr. Ernest Hubbs, scientists in search of answers to an evolutionary shift in the ant population that’s adopted a hive mentality allowing the ants to team with others of their species to create a super colony. In an effort to better understand the intelligent and powerful new life form, Lesko and Hubbs are faced with the choice of either communicating with, or eradicating their antagonists.
