Sixteen legs — film screening and Q&A

Film screening plus Q&A with filmmaker and zoologist Niall Doran and Dr Sara Goodacre from the University of Nottingham SpiderLab.

Giant prehistoric spiders the size of dinner plates try to find love in the dark. As the world rapidly descends into the next period of global mass extinction, a message of hope comes from an unlikely hero: a creature, often reviled, that has survived previous mass extinctions and climatic change in a magical ecosystem hidden beneath one of the world’s last great wildernesses.

Donations accepted for Wildscreen and Bookend Trust.

This event is presented by Wildscreen, organiser of the world’s leading international festival celebrating and advancing storytelling about the natural world.
