On the 7th of October, there will be a screening of The Creeping Garden Screening at the Margate Film Festival.
A real-life science fiction movie exploring a world creeping right beneath our feet, where time and space are magnified and intelligence redefined.
The Creeping Garden is an award-winning feature-length creative documentary exploring the extraordinary world of the plasmodial slime mould as revealed through the eyes of the fringe scientists, mycologists and artists who work with them.
Long overlooked by biologists, in recent years this curious organism has become the focus of much research in such areas as biological-inspired design, emergence theory, unconventional computing and robot engineering, much of which borders on the world of science fiction. The film transports us from the laboratory into its natural habitat, depicting these otherworldly lifeforms using startling time-lapse macro-cinematography to reveal hidden facets of the world around us.
Introduced by Ramsgate-based Jasper Sharp (co-Director)
‘Paradoxically down to earth and deeply eccentric…. invoking science fiction’s creeping unknowns.’ Kim Newman, Sight and Sound.
We look forward to seeing you there!
