About the movie
This film tells the story of photographer Robert Oelman who leaves his psychology career in the early 1990s to pursue photography. He moves from the United States to Colombia and purchases a small farm in the hills. On his journeys through the rain forests of the Amazon Basin he begins to take striking photographic images of undiscovered insects. After more than twenty years of traveling, searching and photographing, his quest culminates with a New York City gallery show. He also learns that these tiny life forms must continue to survive. They are at the bottom of the mammalian food chain and are critically important to all animal species including mankind.
You can watch the trailer on the movie's website: http://www.learningtoseefilm.com/

【電影簡介】
這部電影講述了攝影師羅伯特奧爾曼的故事,他在90年代初期離開了他的心理學職場,去追求攝影。 他從美國移居到哥倫比亞,並在山上購買一座小農場。 在他穿過亞馬遜盆地雨林的旅程中,他開始拍攝未被發現的昆蟲的驚人攝影圖像。 經過二十多年的旅遊,探索和拍攝,他的作品終於在紐約市的一個畫廊展示。 他知道這些微小的生命形式必須繼續存在。 它們位於哺乳動物食物鏈的底部,對包括人類在內的所有動物物種至關重要。
