E.O. Wilson—Of Ants and Men is a moving biopic on PBS Primetime that chronicles the life and ideas of E.O. Wilson, including stories from his childhood that show his lifelong love for the natural world and the journey he took to bridge the connections between nature and humans. Wilson’s work on ant communication led him to his remarkable studies of advanced social behavior throughout the animal world, and when his studies turned to human behavior, the new and controversial discipline of sociobiology was founded, creating an uproar in the scientific community. This film brings together the great themes of Wilson’s life and work: nature and humanity’s place in it.
