This documentary focuses on the most basic elements of human existence, exploring the life cycles of various kinds of cells. Making use of a technique called microcinematography, director Peter Friedman takes his audience inside the body and explains why some cells prosper, combining to reproduce and form organs, and why others result in disease. Complicated scientific concepts are illustrated with easily understandable examples drawn from the worlds of art and architecture.
