The question being asked in this film is - "Are people, in an effort to outwit raccoons, actually making them smarter and unwittingly contributing to their evolutionary success?" Are the ever more complex obstacles that our fast-paced, urban world throws at them actually pushing the development of raccoon brains?
VIDEO USAGE RIGHTS
Why the AV version? Because it provides additional usage options for PBS videos. AV versions come with limited performance rights so they can be shown in classrooms, at PTA meetings, during after school programs, and transmitted on a closed-circuit system within a building or on a single campus. They also can be enjoyed in admission-free public screenings, which also makes them ideal for use by library patrons and businesses involved in community clubs and organizations.
