Susan Kucera – Wild Genius

Susan Kucera (USA)Wild Genius, Doc Feature – Award-winning filmmaker Kucera delivers a mesmerizing, tightly woven documentary with a transformative message. “Wild Genius” vividly captures the extraordinary life and mental health struggles of renowned evolutionary biologist Robert Trivers, hailed by TIME magazine as one of the greatest scientists of the 20th century. Trivers, described as an “under-appreciated genius,” revolutionized our comprehension of human behavior through the lens of evolutionary biology. His advocacy for civil rights and straightforward reasoning presents a compelling argument: understanding our evolutionary origins empowers rather than constrains us. This exceptional documentary challenges societal norms and prompts us to reconsider our place in the natural world. “Wild Genius” is not merely the tale of a pioneering scientist; it’s an invitation to re-imagine life itself, fostering the potential for a brighter future. Wild Genius is more than a spirited and provocative biography, it’s a journey into the deepest corners of human nature. Rangeland Productions.
