This stunningly bizarre short film explores the world of lichen, a species that confounds scientists to this day. Shot in macro 3D, Lichen offers us a look at this remarkable life form and asks what we might learn from it. Lichen will be part of a special Earth Day celebration on UM campus where the macro photography will loom large over Missoula in a celebration that spotlights even the tiniest living things on Earth.
Pop-up Earth Day Installation
On April 22 from 8-10 p.m., the UM Family and Missoula community members are invited to celebrate Earth Day and UM Wildlife Biology’s 85th Anniversary with a free pop-up film installation on the UM campus. IWFF, founded by UM faculty member Chuck Jonkel 44 years ago, will toast the number one Wildlife Biology Program in the nation by spotlighting the tiniest living things on Earth and seeing them larger than life.
