Minutes Bodies: The Intimate World of F. Percy (DVD + Blu-ray)
A film by Stuart A. Staples and David Reeve

This meditative, immersive film from Stuart A. Staples and David Reeve is a tribute to the astonishing work and achievements of naturalist, inventor and pioneering filmmaker F. Percy Smith.

Smith worked in the early years of the 20th century, developing various cinematographer and micro-photographic techniques to capture nature s secrets in action

Minute Bodies is an interpretative edit that combines Smith s original footage with a new contemporary score to create a hypnotic, alien yet familiar dreamscape that connects us to the sense of wonder Smith must have felt as he peered through his own lenses and saw these micro-worlds for the first time.

Features a new score by tindersticks with Thomas Belhom and Christine Ott.


Includes the following short films from the BFI National Film Archive:

The Birth of a Flower (F. Percy Smith, 1910), The Strength and Agility of Insects (F. Percy Smith, 1911), The Wonders of Harmonic Designing (1913), Plants of the Underworld/Down Under (1930), Nature's Double Lifers (Mary Field, 1932), He Would a Wooing Go (Mary Field, 1936), Lupins(Mary Field, 1936), The Life Cycle of the Newt (Mary Field, 1942).
