With a few hundred individuals left, (all within the city limits of Lincoln, Nebraska), ‘Meet the Beetle’ follows the trials and tribulations of this tiny insect that’s riled up a community. Injected with surprising musical sequences this documentary explores the importance of one almost-extinct beetle and it’s place in the world.
