3 Episode- 1- Predators of the Southwest: Cutting edge camera technology provides a never before seen look into the daily struggles of both predators and prey in their ongoing fight for survival in the American Southwest. 2- Central American Killers: Highly specialized camera equipment captures the unique behaviors of some of the rainforest's most elusive animals and insects. 3- Hunters of East Africa: High-speed cameras document the hidden lives of Africa's wildlife in ways invisible to the naked eye.

I am SO EXCITED to be able to purchase this movie! I saw it 4 years ago at the Sedona International Film Festival, for which I am a screener. I have wanted to see it again ever since. Here is the review I wrote the morning after I saw it for the first time :

Last night I saw the film The Speed of Life at the Sedona International Film Festival.
The blood is rushing to my head just typing the title.
I feel alive.
I feel important because I saw it.
I feel everyone is important and everyone's story is important.
It represents what independent film making is all about.
This film (do you still call it a film if it was shot on video?) was so layered, so complex, so intricately woven and so beautifully simple, effortless and chaotic at the same time.

It begins with at risk foster kids in Brooklyn who steal tourists video cameras....to sell on the streets, but also to see the world - Sam always keeps the tapes - to see what those people see. Then the layers begin. I compare this to The Visitor, which I adored, only times 5.

On top of the experience of viewing Speed of Life, the writer, director, creator, Ed Radke, arrived from Santa Fe just in time for questions and answers. I couldn't help but like him immediately, and he was so real, present, accessible, genuine, and how he spoke (with no trace of ego, mind you) about the creative process in general resonated with me down to my artist's toes. He is a teacher.

Apparently all the kids in this were "non- actors",(except for the lead, Sam). They were not only beautiful, but such naturals that they made this feel almost like a documentary. Jeremy Allen White played the lead, Sam. He is studying acting. Watch for him. He's going to be famous someday.

Speed of Life captures some of the most amazing images I've ever seen. If you enjoyed Planet Earth, I would highly recommend adding this to your collection.

Don't buy this...it looks like a nature film but it's some sort of story about a boy

When I first saw this wildlife documentary back in 2010, I instantly fell in love with it. The beauty of nature that they captured always makes me speechless. Since getting this DVD, I have probably watched it around 30 times now. It never gets old.
