The Besieged Fortress Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

Experience a whole new take on the disaster film as director Philippe Calderon uses macrophotography to find out just what happens to a swarming colony of termites when an unexpected rain washes through their six-meter-high African savanna tower, flooding through the chambers and paving the way for an invasion by ravenous and carnivorous ants. Shot in the style of a large-scale disaster film and driven by innovative filmmaking techniques, Calderon's look at the remarkable life of insects provides fascinating insight into a little-explored universe seldom seen by the human eye. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
