Ant Sisters


  Last updated November 8, 2019 at 1:59 pm


In this short animated film a woman takes inspiration from the social lives of ants in a letter to her own estranged sister and discovers what it takes to survive as a collective. The “Ant Sisters” draws from scientific research on the evolution of social insects to weave a tale about the complex dynamics of human and ant sisterhood.

Science and technology is as much a part of our cultural fabric as art, music, theatre and literature. They play a significant role in our daily lives, yet, in a world dependent on science, we often take them for granted. Australia’s Science Channel believes every citizen has a right, and a responsibility, to be informed, and our mission is to create programs to bring that about.
