A Note from the Host, David Rives:
I was approached by Benjamin Owen, an award-winning filmmaker, in Dickson, TN about hosting a feature length documentary on Hummingbirds. As I began to do some preliminary research for the project, I realized that there has never been a documentary made about hummingbirds from a “design” perspective. These incredible creatures are so tiny, yet their capabilities are truly marvelous in every way!
The films in the past that have aired on PBS and nature channels have been consistently from an evolutionary perspective, assuming that hummingbirds arose by means of natural selection over millions upon millions of years. This film “Refracted Glory” is not only inspirational and educational, but NOTHING LIKE IT HAS EVER BEEN PRODUCED… Until now!
