Good film, although lacking in diverse perspectives

Comments about PBS E.O. Wilson - Of Ants and Men DVD:

The contents, production quality, and message of this film are all great. Very compelling documentary.

That said, the one thing that bothered me more and more as I watched it was a lack of diverse perspectives from the speakers in the film. In short, every expert with a speaking role in the film was an older white man. No women were given speaking roles. One black man spoke, but he was a football player - he didn't speak about biodiversity or environmentalism.

As the US becomes increasingly "majority minority", it is important that we see a diversity of perspectives included in discussions about environmental topics. If biodiversity is seen as the domain of older white men, then we won't have enough interest from the rest of the population to enact the measures we desperately need.

Comments about PBS E.O. Wilson - Of Ants and Men DVD:

Excellent documentary on a vital soul in the scientific community. My students (undergraduate) LOVED this introduction to E.O. and his caring for our planet...
As the 5 stars say "doesn't get any better!"

Fabulous production - saw this after I had just read Wilson's THE SOCIAL CONQUEST OF THE EARTH - absolutely fascinating. I have learned so much.

Comments about PBS E.O. Wilson - Of Ants and Men DVD:

Beautifully produced and lovingly told by one of the most important scientists and conservationists of our time. Touted as the "Father of Biodiversity and Sociobiology," Wilson gives us remarkable insights into why we are here, how we are interconnected, and why we should care, especially for the earth and all Her creatures--both great a small.(I'll never look at an ant the same way!) Bravo PBS and E.O. Wilson!
