23rd Ji.hlava International Documentary Film Festival
This minimalist six-minute film looks at the creation of animal life through time-lapse footage of an embryo’s development – a process universal to all animals, including people. The film follows, in microscopic detail, the development of an alpine newt in its translucent egg all the way from first cell division to moment of hatching.
Dutch documentary filmmaker and photographer Jan van IJken (1965) focuses on nature and the world of animals, as for instance in his early film Facing Animals (2012) or in his look at the motion of a flock of birds, The Art of Flying (2015), which was shown in Jihlava as well.
