Jacques Malaterre's film "Homo Sapiens: the Rise of Our Species,"
aired by CBC as part of David Suzuki's show "The Nature of Things,"
was originally released under the title "Homo Sapiens."
"Homo Sapiens is made by the same creative team. Director Jacques
Malaterre, Artistic Director Adrien Morot and Director of Photography
Martial Barrault used meticulous set decorations, elaborate FX effects
and a team of Montréal makeup artists who worked long hours to
transform the cast into the believable prehistoric men and women we
see on the screen."
