The Macro and Micro World of the Mosquito Aedes aegypti: You need to know it before you can fight it!
This non-narrative video from Brazil is uniquely composed of images on the lifecyle of A. aegypti, the vector transmitting dengue and yellow fever. As such it is not dependent on language, only on visual filming of how mosquitoes breed, are born and live in area occupied by humans--information that rarely reaches communities. Each minute of this film correspondes to two days in the life of the mosquito.(29/May/2008)
