SHORT JOY // Nature’s wonders not visible to the naked eye are revealed in a documentary shot through a microscope lens. It shows to the viewer various kinds of plankton, a ubiquitous form of life, without which life on Earth wouldn’t exist. The vivacious movements of the water microorganisms are accompanied by the music of Jana Winderen, a Norweigan artist, composed using the sounds of water organisms, waves and icebergs.
"Ever since I discovered plankton, I’ve become addicted to it. Every time I go out with my plankton net, I am curious about what I will find and I am always amazed by my finds." Jan van IJken
