Second Nature is set in the not-so-distant future, when the environment has deteriorated and humans have decided it’s safer to live in zoo-like habitats that protect them from the outside world. Encouraged by the other animal inhabitants, two young children dare to explore the world outside the walls to see if there is still something worth saving. 

Second Nature will be presented free of charge at Chicago’s historic Lincoln Park Zoo. Recommended for families with children ages 8 to 12.

Directed by Matthew Ozawa
