Frogs: The Thin Green Line

Posted by lisagbrown on April 3, 2009

Just over a year ago, I wrote a post about Allison Argo’s Crash: A Tale of Two Species, a film about shorebirds and horseshoe crabs. I’m happy to say that Allison’s unique perspective on animals is back, this time on behalf of frogs. Frogs: The Thin Green Line premieres this Sunday, April 5th, at 8PM on PBS (check your local listings). As Allison explains in this sure-to-be stunning visual feast, dozens of frog species have completely disappeared over the last decade. This film is both her love letter to these strange amphibians, and also a murder mystery. Where have they gone? And what does their disappearance mean for other frogs and other animals … and for us?

Check the PBS website for a remarkable preview of this film.
