A real-life science-fiction story about slime moulds, the people who work with them, and a world creeping right beneath our feet.An award-winning documentary exploring the fascination of scientists, mycologists, musicians and artists with the extraordinary plasmodial slime mould, a single-celled organism attributed with a primitive intelligence and the focus of considerable research in the areas of biological-inspired design, emergence theory, unconventional computing and robotics.
As well as exploring the slime mould in the lab, the film also travels out into the wild, hunting for the organisms in their natural woodlands habitats, to reveal a world creeping right beneath our feet, where time and space are magnified and intelligence redefined. Featuring an original soundtrack composed by celebrated musician and producer Jim O’Rourke (Sonic Youth, Werner Herzog’s Grizzly Man).
The screening will feature an introduction and Q&A with co-director Jasper Sharp and is presented as part by Thanet SEA ( Science, Environment and Art)
