Simon Pummell's unique documentary Bodysong uses a collage of images to present a portrait of life from the moment the sperm pierces the egg until death. Home movies, famous film images, and other sources have been tapped to supply the materials. The film attempts to embrace the entire spectrum of human existence by including pictures of disease, violence, and decay.

A feast for the eyes and ears of cinefiles everywhere to gobble up and let slowly digest.

Film Threat

What we have here is a cut-rate version of Koyaanisqatsi and its ilk.

Audience Reviews for Bodysong

A disturbing immersion into the ugly beauty that makes up the human condition. You will be affected...

Emotional roller-coaster story which takes place from within the human body. Film theory says "Sound is half the movie", this flick will take you to the marrow of such statement... music by Johnny Greenwood of Radiohead.
