The Bat Movie Pitch
Bats in North America are disappearing at an alarming rate, while human beings have yet to recognize their great contribution and significance in our communal habitat. These fascinating mammals are crucial to the healthy equilibrium of our ecosystem. This film will bring to life the daily and existential struggle for the survival of bats, in particular, the little brown bat, the species most susceptible to White Nose Syndrome, the mysterious disease that has killed between five to seven million bats in North America. Watch and listen to filmmaker Kristin Tieche explain why she decided to make a film about bats.
