Small Wonders follows microbiologist Terence Preston’s 50 year scientific journey into discovering how single-celled organisms move at the air-water interface. The film provides a rare and humorous insight into this hidden amoebae world. Its centrepiece is a hypnotic 16mm film of a groundbreaking experiment shot by Preston in 1972 edited together with found footage of people acting in amoebae-like ways.
