Family Flicks Film Series: Microcosmos

Family Flicks Film Series: Microcosmos

Co-presented with the UCLA Film & Television Archive

Appropriate for ages 7+

Years of research and planning went into this phenomenal documentary that peers into the hidden world of insects, but this film is no mere technical triumph. Directors Claude Nuridsany and Marie Pérennou also bring a touch of poetry to their stunningly close-up images of arthropods and gastropods at work and, well, play in the meadows and grasslands of France. As science meets the sublime, children of all ages will delight in the film’s infectious sense of discovery. (1996, 77 min., Dir. Claude Nuridsany, Marie Pérennou)
