This remarkable quasi-documentary on insects features amazing microphotography which lends support to the film's theory that insects will one day rule the earth. Uneven but a big award winner at the time which enjoyed a cult following, especially amongst the stoned.
Winner of a special award, the Grand Prix de Technique, at the 1971 Cannes Film Festival. Eight camera units filmed the insect world in four continents during a two-year period.
