Expand your perceptions.

Each moment, events take place that the human eye cannot perceive because these occurrences are too small, too large, too fast, too slow or beyond the spectrum of visible light. This 1979 National Geographic special classic video shows us that ‘hidden’ world – the sight of water crystallizing into ice, a single atom’s movement within solid matter, a bullet speeding towards its target. Different sizes, different spectrum, and even different rates of speed can illuminate the underlying processes that are beyond the limits of our eyes and will forever alter your understanding and perception of the world.

~ Thing-In-Itself ~

As is the human body, So is the cosmic body. As is the human mind, So is the common mind. As is the microcosm, So is the macrocosm. As is the atom, So is the universe.

As Above, So Below

That which is Below corresponds to that which is Above,
and that which is Above, corresponds to that which is Below,
to accomplish the miracles of the One Thing.

Microcosmos – Le peuple de l’herbe (1996)

Director: Claude Nuridsany, Marie Pérennou
Producer: Christophe Barratier, Yvette Mallet, Jacques Perrin
Genre: Documentary /Abstract Film / Cinéma Vérité
Country: France, Switzerland, Italy
Language: French / RU / EN subtitles

A documentary of insect life in meadows and ponds, using incredible close-ups, slow motion, and time-lapse photography. Utilizing special macroscopic photographic techniques, filmmakers Claude Nuridsany and Marie Perennou created this fascinating and visually spectacular look at the hidden worlds in the life cycle of an ordinary meadow in France. When seen through the lens of Nuridsany and Perennou’s cameras, insects become gigantic beasts, blades of grass turn into towering monuments, and raindrops form puddles that resemble vast oceans. The filmmakers find humor, drama, and beauty in the lives of these tiny flora and fauna as caterpillars transform themselves into butterflies, beetles struggle with their day’s foraging, and snails reproduce their species.
Microcosmos was a multiple prize winner at the 1996 French Academy of Cinema Awards; the American release version features narration by actress Kristin Scott Thomas.
