Life At A Snail’s Pace

What happens when you fall in love with a mollusk? If you are Marla Coppolino, you build your little friend a comfortable home, make their clothes and take them out. Land snails are found on every continent except for Antarctica and can live to be 20 years old. Marla wants everyone to appreciate the beauty and importance of these tiny arthropods. She is a biologist, artist, and passionate advocate for a creature that is usually ignored or reviled. This film is a wonderfully quirky and memorable look at her snails that may forever change your walk through the garden.
