The Marvellous Wild World of the Vegetable Garden

This nature documentary is a journey to a place that everyone knows, but has never seen like this: a vegetable garden and its many inhabitants. Countless species of insects, spiders and other tiny animals find a refuge here when the gardener abandons all pesticides.

A big world of small animals full of surprises. The film is a feast for the senses: with macro and slow-motion footage never seen before and shot over a period of two years, it is a nature film of a special kind. A cinematic appeal for more biodiversity on our own doorstep.
