“All about life in the treetops – the world’s best rainforest documentary”

When National Geographic filmmakers climb a tree, they don’t bother with the backyard variety. After all, what’s a treetop expedition without flying snakes and orang-utans?

Rainforest: Heroes of the High Frontier follows several nimble explorers into the upper reaches of the rainforest canopy, where more than half of the Earth’s species sprout, hatch, or wriggle their way into the world.

Creative camerawork, clever editing, and a playful musical score lend a distinctive personality to the film and make it one of National Geographic’s most enjoyable 'Specials'.
Even plants come alive with character: in one scene, time-lapse cameras capture seedlings shooting up through the trees like belligerent siblings, shoving each other aside in competition for sunlight.

The film also chronicles the history of canopy research, from fumigation to today’s minimum-impact techniques. While the field is gaining popularity, contemporary rainforest scientists are still considered pioneers.
Rampant clear-cutting adds an air of urgency to their work, as they struggle to ensure that the region survives in three dimensions as well as two.
