Alabama Public Television Broadcast Premiere of The Carnivorous Kingdom
August 24, 2022 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
The Carnivorous Kingdom, a new documentary by Alabama filmmaker Ben Raines offering a rare view into Alabama’s secret world of flesh-eating plants, will have its Alabama Public Television broadcast premiere on Wednesday, August 24th at 7:00 p.m.
Created for Alabama Public Television, Alabama schools, and libraries, the film is co-produced by the Poarch Band of Creek Indians and the Sierra Club Alabama Chapter. Raines’ work not only celebrates the plants’ unusual properties and natural beauty, but the film also explores the species’ historical significance including their medicinal uses in Native American Culture. The film also serves as a cautionary tale highlighting how these precious plants’ are diminishing in number and outlines ways in which Alabamians can protect this state treasure.
