    “A documentary of insect life in meadows and ponds, using incredible close-ups, slow motion, and time-lapse photography…”

    Children, being built nearer to the ground and having more time on their hands, are close observers of ants and spiders, caterpillars and butterflies. Adults tune them out; bugs are things you slap, swat, step on or spray. “Microcosmos” is an amazing film that allows us to peer deeply into the insect world and marvel at creatures we casually condemn to squishing. The makers of this film took three years to design their closeup cameras and magnifying lenses, and to photograph insects in such brilliant detail that if they were cars, we could read their city stickers.Read More »

Subtle sound effects and music add a dramatic dimension to their humorous and fantastic observations which are sure to stimulate the imagination of young and old.Read More »
