Short Film Profile


A cockroach emerges from the primordial sea, crawling on land for the first time. Then, navigating the lush, verdant jungle, the cockroach encounters oversized insects, amphibians, and reptiles. When two gigantic rhinoceros beetles lock horns in aggressive combat, it is like 1950s sci-fi movies in which irradiated insects rule the earth. An intimate vantage point magnifies the striking physical beauty of these tiny creatures, inviting an appreciative reappraisal of numerous species we typically overlook or devalue as mere pests.
