Minute Bodies: The Intimate World of F. Percy Smith

  • Director: Stuart Staples
  • Year: 2016
  • Country: United Kingdom
  • Genre: Documentary
  • Subtitles: No dialogue
  • Duration: 75 min

This gripping film is an homage to the astounding work of F. Percy Smith, a naturalist, inventor and ground-breaking filmmaker. The frontman of Tindersticks edited the footage and composed the original score. The result is a perfect combination of image and sound that will utterly hypnotise you.

What is populating the micro-world, a world that is hidden from our senses ? Why do minute creatures and structures, when made visible by media, fascinate us until today? When does scientific exploration turn into art and vice versa? Media scholar Sebastian Scholz (VU Amsterdam) situates Smith’s compelling work in a tradition of awe-inspiring micro-imagery  that keeps crossing the boundaries of science and art.
