Our Kanopy pick for October is Learning to See: The World of Insects. Winner of the Neapolitan Award (Naples International Film Festival), and the Audience Award for Best Documentary at the Santa Fe Independent Film Festival. Learning to See explores the life of naturalist Robert Oelman, his transformation from psychologist to nature photographer, and his journeys in the Amazon Basin documenting new and rare insect species. Directed by his son, Jake Oelman, the film benefits from a familial intimacy that makes it all the more touching. Run time 70 minutes.
