In the Mandaras Mountains of northern Cameroon live the Mofu - an ancient tribe that shares its homes and crops with insects in a mutual balance of survival. But this year, a terrible drought has hit the region and a legion of termites has invaded their huts and granaries. To drive them out, the Mofu shaman calls for help from Jaglavak, a ferocious red army ant protected by a thick carapace and armed with pincers that cut, tear and slice through anything in its path.

Filmed in an intimate style that reveals the traditional customs of the Mofu shaman and the villagers who depend on him, Master of the Killer Ants also uses stunning macro photography to go underground, giving us a terrifying up-close look at a termite's fortress and the war that rages between termites and Jaglavak. Winner of best film awards at the Shanghai Film Festival and Japan's Wildlife Film Festival.

Special DVD features include: materials and activities for educators; a link to the NOVA Web site; scene selections; closed captions; and described video for the visually impaired.
