"Namib: Surviving the Sand Sea explores life in one of the driest places on Earth, the hyper-arid Namib Desert. An abundance of unique and remarkable organisms call this seemingly inhospitable land their home. The filmmaker, Oliver Halsey, spent over a year getting to understand and film various desert organisms at Gobabeb, a scientific research station in the central Namib.

This documentary takes a close look at the natural history of several unique desert-adapted plant and animal species including, the Namib Dune Ant, scorpions, !nara and Welwitschia. It follows the work that several scientists at Gobabeb are undertaking in order to better understand this magnificent and otherworldly environment, and seamlessly merges research endeavour with stunning time-lapse  photography capturing daily changes in the desert.

Runtime: 50 minutes
