The Secret World of Moths

You will see moths in a different light.

The Secret World of Moths is a magical journey to the world of moths. Using 3D X-ray tomography we shed light to their hidden macrocosm and explore their way of life in an unprecedented way. This film explores the complex respiratory system of a moth which consists of branching tubes that deliver oxygen directly to the cells. The film does therefore more than just deliver existing information; it also provokes new scientific questions to be answered. Geographically the film spans from the Arctic Circle to the Equator. Observing these two extreme environments helps us learn about and understand the diversity and complexity of their macroscopic world and our fragile existence on planet Earth.
