Questions and Answer Session

Film:

"Where the Green Ants Dream"

A 1984 film by German film director Werner Herzog. It is set in the Australian desert and is about a land feud between a mining company and the native aborigines. The aborigines claim that an area the mining company wishes to work on is the place where green ants dream, and that disturbing them will destroy humanity.
