Super Mole

“Mighty Mole” is a light-hearted and insightful profile of one of the most amazing and industrious animals on earth – the mole. This film ventures deep underground to reveal the incredible story of how this little mammal survives and thrives. State of the art photography takes the audience on a journey into the labyrinth of tunnels where the mole lives it’s entire life. Here we discover the mole’s dazzling ‘superpowers’: forelimbs that can dig through the toughest soil, huge lungs which enable it to breathe underground, a supersensitive nose that can smell earthworms behind a wall of clay, and special whiskers on it’s snout and tail which detect the slightest vibrations through the ground.


Our mole put all these powers to good use, for above ground her archenemy, the Lawnmower Man, is trying every morning on his lawn. Our mole must eat constantly or die of starvation, so to survive she must outwit her human nemesis at every turn. Who will win?
