they create a hypnotic, alien yet familiar dreamscape that keeps us constantly guessing, at times as abrasive as mica levi’s chilling ‘under the skin’ score, & as sublime as eluvium’s headiest movements.

the film itself is a meditative & immersive tribute to the astonishing work & achievements of the early twentieth century naturalist, inventor & pioneering filmmaker F. Percy Smith. 'Minute bodies' is an interpretative edit that combines Smith's original footage with a new contemporary score by tindersticks, with Thomas Belhom & Christine Ott that connects us to the sense of wonder Smith must have felt as he peered through his own lenses to see these micro-worlds for the first time. The forming of the edit & its musical score evolved over a three year period. The music was created from a loose collective of invited musicians.
