The Love Bugs
Director: Allison Otto | 34 min | 2019 | United States
Over the course of 60 years two married entomologists traveled to more than 67 countries and quietly amassed the world’s largest private collection of insects, with more than 1 million specimens. But as they grapple with Parkinson’s and their twilight years, these two soulmates–married for 55 years–decide to give the collection away. This humorous and poignant documentary explores the love of Nature–and the Nature of Love–and what it means to devote oneself completely to both.
