‘Serengeti Rules’ and HIFF Shine Light on New Theory

A scene from “The Serengeti Rules.”

With new knowledge comes new hope — at least according to the documentary, “The Serengeti Rules,” which follows a band of young scientists as they discover a radical new theory of the natural world, one that could help confront some of the biggest environmental challenges of our time.

As part of its “Air, Land and Sea” program, the Hamptons International Film Festival will screen the inspiring ecological film on Thursday, May 16, at Tutto Il Giorno in Sag Harbor.

A panel on keystone species and local ecosystems will follow the screening, featuring Nicole Delma of “Air, Land and Sea,” Anne Chaisson of HIFF, naturalist Mike Bottini and landscape designer Edwina von Gal.

“HIFF’s ‘Air, Land, and Sea’ program offers this signature program dedicated to global issues of environmental conservation,” according to a press release. “Founded in 2016 with the goal to generate awareness around man-made environmental issues, these programs serve to foster a deeper appreciation for our planet, and allow filmmakers and experts to share information and discuss solutions to the global problems that face us all today.”

Tickets are $75. For more information, visit hamptonsfilmfest.org.
