    I've watched this film several times and never tire of it. Pierre Dansereau is the captivating and engaging heart and soul of the piece. He was a pioneering ecologist who lived long enough to share his unique perspectives on the natural world and our inextricable links to it. He remains an inspiration to a world always in motion but changing at an unprecedented rate.
