THE CREEPING GARDEN (Tim Grabham, Jasper Sharp, UK). 82 minutes. Rating: NNNN

Have you’ve ever taken a moment to think about plasmodial slime moulds and wondered what purpose they serve in nature? How they go about performing their functions, what it is they want? I certainly hadn’t, but after seeing Tim Grabham and Jasper Sharp‘s The Creeping Garden, I’ve been thinking about them a lot.

Meshing fascinating high-speed footage of slime moulds with intriguing interviews with biologists and authors, all propelled along by Jim O’Rourke‘s ambient, immersive musical score, The Creeping Garden is a serious scientific inquiry that also functions as a trippy philosophical exploration of our place in the world and the really weird things just beneath us.
