Oscar nominee Jacques Perrin (Winged Migration, Z) produced this eye-popping look at a world rarely seen by human eyes. Directors Claude Nuridsany and Marie Pérennou used groundbreaking macroscopic photography equipment to make a big-screen spectacle out of the tiny plant and animal life of a French meadow. This immersive visual experience features narration by Perrin as well as an eclectic score by Bruno Coulais (Coraline).
