Script Y. Alikov
Director F. Soboliev



Scientists aim to come to understand the language of animals. How do ants or bees transmit information to each other? How do birds or fishes speak? In what way monkey leader rules its flock? Why do dolphins like to communicate with people? Wonderful micro- and submarine filming, long camera observations let us permeate the unknown world of live nature.
