Baobab: Portrait of a Tree

  • 1973 ----- color ----- 52 min ----- dvd///
  • A fascinating study of a world in miniature, the legendary African baobab. The curving trunk, massive root-like limbs and inviting shade of this fabled patriarch are home and haven to the life of a teeming microenvironment. Birds, insects, reptiles and mammals are born, hunt, feed, frolic and die fueling a chain of existence pivoting around the baobab. Each creature supports and is, in turn, supported by this intricate ecosystem.
