Our next Eco Film on Friday, May 24th will be David Attenborough’s First Life – Arrival.

2010, 59 minutes. BBC. UK, English w/subtitles

In First Life – Arrival, David Attenborough goes back in time to the roots of the tree of life, in search of the very first animals. His journey begins in a forest near his childhood home in Leicester, UK, where a fossil discovery transformed our understanding of the evolution of complex life. Traveling to the fog-bound coastline of Newfoundland and the Australian outback, Attenborough takes us to the earliest forms of animal life to exist on Earth.

From the first animal forms that moved to the first mouths that ate, he explores the creatures that evolved the traits and tools that allow all animals, including ourselves, to survive to this day.
