I've a recollection of seeing this film at school in the mid 1960's.  It was 16mm - that was part of the excitement for me as a young teenager.  I've remembered the name of the film, and it made an impression on me - though I don't remember much of it.  I've an idea it came from Arthur Rank, and was circulated by a Christian Film organisation.  Good luck in the search, I'd like to see it too.

I saw the film also maybe 30-40 yrs ago. excellent film! the Son that is sent to the ant colony is the only white ant. he trys to show them how to stop fighting and they turn on him. killing him. later he is back with his father. when he opens his hands ther are lines like honey lines on his hands. a very moving film!  I wish they would do a new film for this.

I too remember watching this film as a child-- it had a real impact on me--helped be grasp a piece of what God dis when he sent his son to become human!  I'd love to find this movie someplace!

I want to find Ant Keeper too!

I was in a Catholic school when I saw it and was deeply impressed. With all the wars and conflicts today, we need to listen to the ANTS.

I think they rented to from a media center. Many years ago I tried but no one had heard of it.
