Synopsis by John Schietinger
Rainforest: Heroes of the High Frontier looks at the brief history of rainforest research. Through some inventive camerawork, the directors follow enthusiastic researchers to the tops of rainforest trees (known as the rainforest canopy), where more than half of the earth's species reside. Lighthearted music and the exuberant energy of the researchers give this video a playful tone. The researchers, however, do not fail to mention the importance of rainforest conservation as the main component in the continuation of their important research.
