Here comes the Blob! More commonly known as slime-mold, this extraordinary one-billion-year-old organism challenges our worldview on living matter and is about to revolutionize the concept of brainless intelligence.
Blending science fiction, animation, the beauty of nature, humor and cutting-edge science, this is a quirky trip exploring this most surprising and mind-blowing organism. Neither animal, nor plant, nor fungi, the blob is one giant single cell whose amazing capacities are leading pioneer scientists to a very new world – that of brainless intelligence. Shot on 3 continents, the film is a scientific investigation shaped like a thriller, following top international experts from Europe, Japan and the US, through their major discoveries, and offering a mind-blowing experience into the very roots of cognition.
