Humans, the Universe and Nature

Humanity is only a tiny part of the universe and by far not as unique as we think. From the infinite vastness of the universe to microscopic units, from the Earth's ecosystems to the human body, every episode of this animation series makes things comprehensible that go beyond our imagination. For man is not the navel of the world.

"Insignificant" is designed as a ten-part series. The episodes summarized in a film can be viewed above.
