Switzerland | 80m
*Live music and soundscape by Long Distance Poison and composer David First
12:20am at Nitehawk

“Even when the film makes a row of backlit caterpillars look like Busby Berkeley chorines, or when it makes the loud pecks of a pheasant sound like the stomping of Godzilla, the authentic mystery of Microcosmos is not in question… Unless the viewer has ever been inside an anthill, Microcosmos is sure to reveal a strange and transfixing secret universe, one in which even the physics of splashing raindrops looks suddenly new. The film occasionally pauses for a long shot of the landscape, as if to guarantee that when the camera (like that in Blue Velvet) moves deeply into its lawn-level view of the world, it has not actually left planet Earth.”
Janet Maslin, the New York Times
