Kentucky filmmaker Chris Korrow’s award-winning film, Garden Insects, premiered nationwide on PBS in 2007, and was filmed in Korrow’s organic gardens in Cumberland County. As an environmental film, Garden Insects, gives viewers an opportunity to connect with nature through something that is close and personal -- their own gardens -- rather than something far away like the destruction of the rain forests.
The movie features profiles of insects and information about insect life cycles is presented amidst original music and an artistic back drop of colorful flora and fauna of the garden. Great for children, gardeners and nature lovers.
