Movie Info

This documentary presents the fascinating world of cells. Winner of ten international film festival awards, Death By Design uses micro cinematography to capture the life of cells, invisible to the naked eye. In that mysterious world, cells communicate with each other and create, divide, and kill themselves in accordance with the good of the entire organism. Cell activity is interspersed with images and metaphors from the macrocosm of society. Imploding skyscrapers, a hundred lighted violins, and Busby Berkeley routines artfully mimic the movements of cells in this imaginative film.

  • What lingers are the surprising, revealing visual metaphors for an astoundingly orchestrated process featuring what the program rightly boasts is ''a cast of billions.''

  • This insightful and rousing documentary about our rampant consumption of technology opens the lid on the environmental and human catastrophe caused by technology - once watched you will never see an Apple product in the same way again.

  • contains a few nuggets I didn't already know, but by and large it's entry-to-mid-level material
