Summary for the movie
The simple actions of a young boy on the beach provide visual metaphors for the normally unseen world. A cinematographic treat in which ordinary objects reveal unsuspected worlds of intense visual experience. Uses time-lapse photography, underwater and aerial photography, micro-photography, and stop-action filming to show scenes of a seagull in flight, of snow crystals forming and melting, of sand castles and a battle of toy soldiers, and of pebbles and dandelions. The camera adds a profound dimension to what the boy has seen, giving us a deeper understanding of visual awareness.
