A Fascinating Short Film That Zooms In on the Complex Faces of Praying Mantises

Academy Award winning director Zana Briski has created a fascinating short film that studies the very complex faces of praying mantises as they go about eating, grooming, and curiously peering into the camera. The film is part of the REVERENCE Migrating Museum, a traveling exhibit of film and photography.

Zana Briski’s REVERENCE is a traveling exhibit of large-scale photographs, film and music housed in a movable 10,000 square ft. structure designed by Pritzker Prize-winning architect Shigeru Ban. Inspired by dreams of a praying mantis, REVERENCE challenges us to rethink our relationship to the earth and her creatures by bringing us face to face with insects – with insects as individual sentient beings. REVERENCE will journey to city parks around the world.
