Description: A close-up look at a very special group of superheroes: the pollinators. Narrated by Meryl Streep, "Wings of Life" reveals the complex worlds of bees, butterflies, birds, and bats - and the plants that rely on them. A spectacularly beautiful, gentle film that reminds us not to take little things for granted. 2013. 77 mins. Rated G.
After the film, teaching artist Mary Jane Nusbaum guides kids (ages 5 and older) in an eco-art project in the Jane Peck Gallery.
