Embark on an Alice-sized journey through the ecstatic wonderland of the insect kingdom in one of the most remarkable nature docs of all time. Capering crickets, dueling beetles—and an unforgettable snail love scene—the weird and wonderful dramas of our tiny kin unfold in breathtaking, close-up view. Shot over three years without any special effects, this kaleidoscopic work reminds us of our innate connectivity to the natural world, and attests to the transformative power of wonder. Like a bee gorged on pollen, Microcosmos will leave you buzzing for days.
