Sinopsis

A scientist experiments with imaginary, microscopic, fantasy lives in his remote laboratory and the world he sees comes to life searching for him and fleeing from him. Like in Painlevé’s films, science here is a synonym of fiction. The camera appears to be directly connected to the inventor’s brain and the microscope is attached to his eye.  What we see is not far from an experiment in which we also form an inevitable part. The spectator is a creature created by the film itself.  



Bio

CHU-LI SHEWRING Y ADAM GUTCH 

Chu-Li and Adam have been collaborating since completing their studies at the National Film and Television School, UK, in 2007. Often taking inspiration from uncanny aspects of the natural world, and the creatures and people who inhabit these environments, they like to combine both non-fictional and fictional approaches in their films. They live on the Isle of Wight.
