Mold patterns resembling fireworks, incredible plant choreographies, and the unexpected magic of a bee feeding on nectar from flowers. Cinematic pioneer F.Percy Smith managed to capture nature's beauty under the microscope in such a timeless manner that it captivates audiences even a hundred years later. He also inspired Stuart Staples (Tindersticks) to compose a new soundtrack, thus bringing to life a meditative and hypnotic audiovisual tribute.
