A screening of Disneynature’s latest production, “Wings of Life,” will highlight a program Wednesday, July 24, presented by the UC Davis School of Education and the Honey and Pollination Center at the Robert Mondavi Institute for Wine and Food Science.

Music, honey tastings, bugs, pollination information and more will open the program at 6:15 p.m. in the foyer of the UCD Conference Center. The movie will begin at 7 p.m. followed by a discussion with the director, Louie Schwartzberg.

Schwartzberg brings to life the story of pollination through artful macro-photography in this 80-minute film narrated by Academy Award-winning actress Meryl Streep. It showcases the beauty of bees, bats, hummingbirds and butterflies as they keep the planet alive, because “a third of the world’s food supply depends on these incredible — and increasingly threatened — creatures,” a news release said.

“Wings of Life” won Best Theatrical Program at the Jackson Hole Science Media Awards 2012, and a Best Cinematography Roscar Award. A trailer for the film can be viewed online at nature.disney.com.

Schwartzberg is an award-winning cinematographer, director and producer who is active in the TED community, having spoken at the TED 2011 conference in Long Beach, TEDx San Francisco and TEDx Jackson Hole. His YouTube videos have collected more than 25 million views.

Tickets are $5 each and are available online at www.rmi.ucdavis.edu/events. Though advance ticket purchases are encouraged, some tickets will be sold at the door.

The Conference Center is at 550 Alumni Lane in the south gateway area of the UCD campus. Free parking is available across the street, adjacent to the Mondavi Center.
