This interview from Time for Kids with the maker of a new documentary about flowers and pollinators called Wings of Life is awesome. Louie Schwartzberg is obviously a man who loves his subject, his medium, and the audience he is speaking to.
What I think struck me most is his belief that if you love flowers you will do things to help flowers. If you understand what a flower means to you, you will make better choices that will help both the flowers and you. That’s a powerful lesson to teach kids, and I sincerely hope that his new film helps do that. Oh, and it sure doesn’t hurt that the movie is chock-full of time lapse video and narrated by Meryl Streep to boot. ~AR
