Learning the Importance of Life with Wings of Life



There is one thing that I have made a conscious effort of doing with my children, and that is teaching them the importance of caring for our earth. After my older son had developed food allergies, we began working to grow as much of our fruits and vegetables as possible. Over the years, my children have gained a love for caring our our garden and the earth. There is one thing that I have not yet taught my children about yet, and that is about the pollinators that give our plants the ability to grow the food that we eat.


Last week, I brought my youngest son Tyler with me to Los Angeles for a screening of the new Disneynature film, "Wings of Life." The movie told a touching story of how our life does not just depends on the flowers, but also on the pollinators.

Before watching the movie, we would always swat at a bumblebee when working in the garden unaware that they were the creatures that were making our garden grow. Not only does our garden need bumblebees to produce the fruits and vegetables, but the bee population has been diminishing.

My son and I learned about the process that bees and other pollinators go through to produce life on our earth. We gained a new love and appreciation for pollinators and will never find ourselves swatting at a bee or other insect again.


Following the movie, we enjoyed an education question and answer period with the director of the film, Louie Schwartzberg. The next morning, my son and I went into the garden, and started planting more flowers. The flowers will help the pollinators flourish and grow around us, helping to bring more life to our planet.

Wings of Life will be available on Blu-ray and DVD on April 16th.


Disclosure: We attended a media screening of Wings of Life. All of our photos, thoughts and opinions are of our own.

    1. You have done great job by teaching your kinds about caring for our garden/earth. Every parents have to put efforts to teach their kids about our culture and importance of caring including garden, earth. As you said that you are willing to teach about pollinators. Being as academic writer at Quality Dissertation where I am providing cheap dissertation writing services to needy students who are looking for academic writing help, I have read about Pollination which is the act of moving pollen grains from the male anther of a flower to the female stigma. And yes “Wings of Life” is the best documentary that explores into the realm of flowers and their pollinators.

    4. The camera-work was amazing as were the sights and sounds. Beautiful colors and landscapes backdrop the world of flowers and how they are pollinated across the world, from deserts to lush grassy areas. Since I am CV maker and providing Cover letter help services - https://www.cvfolks.co.uk/cover-letter/ at CV Folks but I like watching movie. At first when I looked at this documentary, "wings of life" my first impression was it was going to be about butterflies, and birds and bees and all those flying pollinators. But I was in for a surprise. That surprise was what got me hooked up, the documentary was literally turned into a story, like a nature ballet and the "star actors" are the flowers, inanimate and slightly motionless yet "given souls" as though the flowers were talking themselves, whereas the pollinators are more like supporters in the play.
