The film reminds us that Wi-Fi is not the only connection that matters and that sometimes, in ordinary places, you can uncover extraordinary things that can transform you forever—you just need to step outside.
Backyard Wilderness is a winner of several awards including Best Film Short Subject, Best Film for Lifelong Learning, Best Cinematography, and Best Visual Effect from the Giant Screen Cinema Association “Through breathtaking camerawork, 'Backyard Wilderness' shows us an intimate portrait of the world around us,” said evolutionary biologist, vice president for Science Education, and executive director of HHMI Tangled Bank Studios Sean B. Carroll, P.h.D. “The goal of this film, coupled with our educational outreach effort, is to inspire the next generation of scientists and explorers to look closely and observe the natural world around them to better understand how it works.”
