Turn your world inside out.
The speeding impulse of a brain cell racing at 250 miles-per-hour… the quivering dance of hairs in our ear, so small that 10,000 bunched together are thinner than one strand of hair from our head… the 100-mile trek of a red blood cell, only thousandths of an inch in size, through our vast, tangled network of veins, arteries and capillaries… or the miraculous genetic fusion of parental DNA that signals the beginning of a unique new life.
All these extraordinary occurrences are routine events for our bodies, yet almost all are hidden from our view.
This is the tale of what takes place beneath the skin – a tale that allows us to see the extraordinary accomplishments of our everyday lives. Three years in the making, The Human Body reveals the incredible story of life. In astonishing detail, this large format film presents a look at the biological processes that go on without our control and often without our notice.
