King Solomon's Garden
Animal communication is a little-understood aspect of animal survival. There are a number of well-known reasons why animals survive; but how far does their ability to convey messages to one another help them keep their species alive?
This film was made in Kiev in the best Soviet nature film tradition. It contains no experts, only the communicators themselves - birds and bees, ants, fish, and baboons. Their communication systems were in use millions of years before Man evolved his own methods.
King Solomon's Garden is a world of odour, gesture, colour, cries of alarm, and various types of orientation signalling. It is a world that will be slow to give up its secrets, but which is beginning to give up a few of them in response to sensitive recording techniques and patient searches into the group behaviour of animals.
