Hidden Beauty - A love story that feeds the earth

Our life on earth depends on a most unlikely love affair - one between flowers and the bees, butterflies, birds and bats which enable plants to reproduce. Flowers are no shrinking violets; their brilliant colours and exotic perfumes are designed to lure their pollinators, to intoxicate them with desire. These animals are drawn into an intricate dance of seduction, a dance on which more than one third of our food crops depend, a dance without which we could not survive.

Directed by Louie Schwartzberg, HIDDEN BEAUTY presents a close-up look at these unsung heroes of the world’s food chain. Their hidden realms are full of intrigue, drama, and mesmerizing beauty. Yet they are increasingly threatened. And if they should disappear, we may too.
