Michael Murphy (Manhattan) stars as James Lesko with Nigel Davenport (A Man For All Seasons) as Dr.
Ernest Hubbs, scientists in search of answers to an evolutionary shift in the ant population that’s
adopted a hive mentality allowing the ants to team with others of their species to create a super colony.
In an effort to better understand the intelligent and powerful new life form, Lesko and Hubbs are faced
with the choice of either communicating with, or eradicating their antagonists.
Introduction and contextualized and corrective commentary will be provided by The Nat’s Vice President
