Film director : Benoît Huc - Tango Vidéo - assisted by Anne Noël. journalist : Luc Noël. Documentary - 31 minutes - the Philippe De Zuttere Bryological Foundation . Discovery of the plant mosses with Philippe Dezuttere, field brylogist.
This is an excellent video on Bryophytes. Some of the narration is in English, other portions are in other languages with English subtitles. Duration is 30 minutes. I think it is certainly worth watching.

Very cool. This last summer a friend spent a couple hours with me pointing our Bryophytes. I had no idea how many amazing things I was missing out on just becuase my eyes weren't looking "correctly".
