Free movies, with popcorn!
Our film title this evening is WHAT PLANTS TALK ABOUT.
We humans think our communication systems are pretty complex. However, we are seriously deficient in those skills compared to plants. We are too big and too busy to know how sophisticated they are.
Hard core science is effortlessly integrated with a light-hearted look at how plants behave. Scientist J.C. Cahill reveals an astonishing landscape where plants eavesdrop on each other, talk to their allies, call in insect mercenaries and nurture their young. It is a world of pulsing activity, where plants communicate, co-operate and, sometimes, wage all-out war.
