Micro Giants


Institute History

  • 2018 Sundance Film Festival


This spectacular photorealistic animation lets audiences experience the ecosystem from the unique “micro world” perspective of insects. Tiny flowers are mighty trees, aphids are beasts, blades of grass become forests, rocks are mountains, and water drops are as big as swimming pools. It is in this magnificently surreal—yet based in reality—world that a brutal and mesmerizing story of survival plays out.

As you use our Online Archives, please understand that the information presented from Festivals, Labs, and other activities is taken directly from official publications from each year. While this information is limited and doesn't necessarily represent the full list of participants (e.g. actors and crew), it is the list given to us by the main film/play/project contact at the time, based on the space restrictions of our publications. Each entry in the Online Archives is meant as a historical record of a particular film, play, or project at the time of its involvement with Sundance Institute. For this reason, we can only amend an entry if a name is misspelled, or if the entry does not correctly reflect the original publication.
