    A mysterious cosmic event spurs on the rapid evolution of the world’s ants. When they begin to create strange geometric shapes and towers in a small desert community, a pair of scientists are sent to a remote laboratory to investigate the quickly-developing collective intelligence of the colony. Legendary title designer Saul Bass brings us a shockingly naturalistic look at humanity’s first encounter with a very unexpected source of intelligent life in this heady cult classic.
